Publisher: Sleeping Bear Press ISBN: 9781410310323

Poor Delia, nothing ever happens to her. Her life is so dull, dull, dull. But perhaps if Delia decided to look up or turn around, she'd see... the elephants marching through her house... the pirate sitting behind her on the school bus... or even the submarine that rises to the surface right after she leaves the pool! If Delia ever paid attention, she'd realize her life is quite exciting after all! Artist Andy Myer brings to hilarious life the experiences and possibilities that the world might offer each of us if we would only pay attention.

Mr. Biggs in the City is a hilarious and heart-warming story for both the young and young-at-heart, with vividly wacky illustrations that will make you laugh out loud with every turn of the page.
