Publisher's Summary

When the annual school science fair comes round, Mr Cartright's class don't get to work on the Soap Factory, the Maggot Farm, or the Exploding Custard Tins.

To their intense disgust they get the Flour Babies - sweet little six-pound bags of flour that must be cared for at all times.

Young Simon Martin, a committed hooligan, approaches the task with little enthusiasm. But, as the days pass, he not only grows fond of his flour baby, he also comes to learn more than he ever could have imagined about the pressures and strains of being a parent.

My favourite book from secondary school

I use to read the book back in my 1st year in secondary school for my English class and I’ve enjoyed the story and characters.

Don't read this book in public!

This book made me laugh out loud; it really pleased my inner child. An excellent plot with brilliantly drawn characters. I would recommend this book to any reader, of any age.
