The Mystery Box and Finnigan Flynn is a fabulous tongue-twisting romp for under threes. A bam-booming rumbling-a-jumbling mystery box arrives at Finnigan Flynn’s door. Against the sound advice on the box warning the receiver not to open it, Finnigan Flynn just can’t resist… And it’s lucky for us he doesn’t because otherwise we’d never meet the host of bizarre and wonderful things he unleashes – toe-nibbling crocs, frolicking frocks and bright building blocks among others.
Cat Chapman’s lively watercolour illustrations burst off the page with a movement and delight that matches Davey’s rumbustious words.
