A reissue of Michael Rosen's collection of nonsense verse with rhymes, poems, wordplay and limericks.
In the best tradition of nonsense verse, here are poems to make everyone smile and laugh out loud. Children will delight in unraveling the meanings of the words and in creating their own nonsense verse.
Containing all the ingredients of Michael Rosen's poetry - humour, rhyme, repetition and wordplay. Covering all sorts of topics from football to Little Mary Anne who's made of elastic, to dinosaurs.
An enjoyable book which might stimulate children's own inclinations to mess about with language. - Books for Keeps
The author has a child's ear for word sound and an eye for nutty humour. Clare Mackie's crackling illustrations add verve and vigour to each page. - Junior Education
