Mr Strange looked askance at my fig rolls when we unpacked the shopping.. That would be the best opening line ever to a biscuit themed novel. I think it's high-time that we created a crowd-sourced biscuit-themed novel. We've got a killer opening line, all we really need is a good title (Crumbs! [an...
