Lil’ Muffin Drops the Mic – Romesh Ranganathan’s debut middle grade book
Following the incredible success of his previous publications As Good As it Gets and Straight Outta Crawley, the comedy powerhouse Romesh Ranganathan returns with his debut middle grade book Lil’ Muffin Drops the Mic, released on 20th July 2023.
This infectious and hysterical read is ideal for readers aged eight plus, and explores the hilarious and whole-hearted take on the colliding worlds of rap battles and baking!
The book follows the story of James, who since the departure of his father, can’t seem to stop worrying about everything. His favourite hobby, baking, is a fun (and delicious!) distraction, but no matter how many AMAZING brownies he makes, James still feels like there’s a missing ingredient in his life…
Until he discovers rapping, and he’s COMPLETELY hooked. It’s not long before James starts writing his own raps about everything – from music and cakes to his giant pet rabbit, Graham!
So when he hears that grime artist star Brukka is on the hunt for young talent, James starts to wonder: could this be his chance to share his MUFFINS, his MUSIC, and maybe even his feelings with the whole school? If he could only find the confidence…
With laugh-out-loud illustrations from bestselling illustrator James Lancett and full of Romesh’s trademark humour, this charming book is a hilarious holiday read for younger children this summer.
