The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors


From the Forest of Over by the Tyre Swing where he battles with a wooden clothes peg, Rock seeks out real competition. He leaves the Kingdom of Backgarden seeking a worthy opponent. Could it be Paper battling with a printer in Mum’s study, overwhelming a packet of trail mix? Or could it be Scissors, confounding strange and sticky circle man, outwitting the junk drawer, taking on dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets? The stand off between the legendary heroes of Rock Paper, Scissors awaits us!

The vast imagination of Drew Daywalt has been matched in the wonderful movie style images of Adam Rex in this very funny, wildly diverse title. We love ‘The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors‘ and can imagine it being enjoyed by children, and their adults, for many, many years.
