There was great excitement when General Garibaldi returned to his beloved Italy after many years abroad. He had come to fight the greedy French Bourbons, who had invaded the country. Wearing ingenious pizza buckles on their belts and wielding water balloons, Garibaldi's army soon defeated the rascally French, and the world-famous Bourbon and Garibaldi biscuits were born!In this little known footnote to history, the inimitable Ralph Steadman has created a magnificent and hilarious tour de force.

"Told with a flourish, humorous detail and dashing artwork."
Children's Bookseller

"A delciously different account of the battlefield...is good humoured and irreverent, and a joy from start to finish."
Bookseller - Hope, Jake

"As well as some wonderful artwork, it's highly educational. The origins of the Bourbon biscuit were lost to the world before Steadman revealed that General Garibaldi's granny had baked them as a consolation prize for the defeated French army. And when she ran out of chocolate, she baked some with raisins for the victorious General."
