"Baby's First Jailbreak" by Jim Whalley and Stephen Collins (Bloomsbury Children's Books)

That miscreant tot Frank is back for a new and exciting adventure, following on from "Baby's First Bank Heist"

In "Baby's first Jailbreak" Frank's zoo is suffering from a drop in visitor numbers. Who can be responsible?

Frank soon realises he has a competitor. Baby Bruce! He's a greedy little scamp who's hungry for fame and wants to see Baby Frank's zoo go out of business.

But Frank soon stumbles across a secret. All the animals in Baby Bruce's zoo are unhappy and miserable - so it's time for a grand jailbreak, a baby jailbreak to be precise!

Will Frank prevail?

This is another fizzingly original and brilliant caper from Jim and Stephen, filled with tons of hilarious little details and in-jokes, once again proving that you can't put Baby (Frank) in the corner!

Sum this book up in a sentence: A brilliant baby-animal-filled escape romp that's brilliantly original and superbly entertaining.

"Baby's First Jailbreak" by Jim Whalley and Stephen Collins is out now, published by Bloomsbury Children's Books (kindly supplied for review).
