Mr Biff the Boxer – Happy Family series

A 24-page book about fellow boxing rivals Mr Biff and Mr Bop, Mr Biff the Boxer is a book I recently passed to a young person who does boxing. It really allowed him to begin a relationship with reading – something he never felt he had prior to this. The book’s illustrations help to tell the story of his family’s efforts to get Mr Biff back in shape, in time for the annual charity match. It’s a great choice for those just beginning to grasp the written word for themselves, with a relaxed comic flow to the writing, and ample repetition as it builds.
