Blood and Guts and Rats’ Tail Pizza

Written by: Vivian French

Illustrated by: Chris Fisher

Hilarious, horrible, laugh-out-loud text about Hank and the Blood and Guts Cafe from bestselling author Vivian French.

The Blood and Guts Café is empty. There’s delicious Rats’ Tail Pizza and special Guts Pie with Blood Sauce – but no one to eat it. And when Hank sets off to find his customers, he’s in for a surprise…

Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey.

Hank can’t work out where all his customers have gone. They usually queue for miles for a taste of his rats’ tail pizza and special guts pie with blood sauce. And when he finds them all at a newly opened cake shop, sitting at tables and sipping tea, he can’t believe it! He’s got to find a way to win his customers back. But how?
