“This collection of silly rhymes and poems is sure to please. . . . An excellent choice for pre-readers and very young children, as well as anyone with a love for nursery rhymes.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

Michael Rosen invites children to joyfully celebrate sounds and the infinite possibilities of language with these nine clever poems adapted from A Great Big Cuddle. Nonsense verses with the feel of classic nursery rhymes tickle the ear and set feet tapping while expressive illustrations by Chris Riddell illuminate the larger-than-life characters. With subject matter that runs the gamut of a child’s emotional range from hungry and angry to wiggly and giggly, this collection will delight little listeners.
