Specifically we're planning some explosions.
only a thousand tiny ones to start with mind.
Back here we reviewed the first delicious book about baker's son Ronny Rock written by Merryn Threadgould and illustrated by Bruce Ingman. Since then, the second volume has been published; 'Ronny Rock starring in a Thousand Tiny Explosions'.We were first in the queue at the bookshop; 'if you like cakes and comics and carrying on like a Rock Star then this is the book for you'. Yes please.
The story revolves around Ronny's continued progress to Master Baker status through his experimentations with 'Boing Busta' sweets and chocolate cakes during 'take your child to work day'. The result; 'Chocolate Suddenlys' which have the potential to set off a thousand tiny explosions inside your mouth and set you grooving, jiving, moonwalking, flipping and jitterbugging from first bite.
We WANTED some.
So we went and purchased some 'Boing Bustas' of our own
Which come with this warning...obviously they're worried about unsupervised dancing rocking the house off it's foundations. very sensible.
Then we made some chocolate brownies and did some Ronny style doctoring.
and then this happened
and after that everything is a slightly nauseous blur. Fun though.

Off to go and lie down in a darkened room for the rest of the afternoon.
