Garibaldi's Biscuits by Ralph Steadman

Ralph Steadman's Garibaldi's Biscuits is a playful account of how the famous General Garibaldi and his army forced the French Bourbon invaders to their knees in Italy.  

Garibaldi's soldiers use pizzas for belt buckles to hold up their pantaloons and eat them when they're hungry.  The Garibaldi army attacks with water balloons and sheer courage.  The defeated army and the conquerors meet at grandparents' Garibaldi's home for a meal - and for special biscuits baked by grandmother Garibaldi.  

Garibaldi's Biscuits is a fun, fanciful story with pictures to delight kids and adults.
