In My Finest Victor Melrew Voice "I DON'T BELIEEEEVE IT"

Finn loves books and one of his favourites is Ladybird classic version of The Gingerbread Man with the refrain "Run run as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man" - Finn loves to run.

Jane suggested I try him with a brilliant book called Jasper's Beanstalk and he loves it so much it is very hard to read it to him just once.

At the end Jasper's bean does grow into a huge beanstalk and the final picture has just the stalk and Jasper's tail as the daft animal climbs up looking for giants...

I thought I'd try Finn with Jack and the Beanstalk next and picked up a copy today. But guess what? Instead of Fee Fi Fo Fum I smell the blood of an Englishman the giant says Fee Fi Fo Fum watch out everyone, here I come.

What kind of a soppy giant is that?


  1. Ring the Daily Mail at once! It'll probably be on the front page as 'LOONY LEFT BANS GIANT VICTIM DISCRIMINATION' etc
