Flying pigs and wobbling plates: welcome to the topsy-turvy world of nursery rhymes from Children’s Laureates Michael Rosen and Chris Riddell. With over thirty rhymes, this is a book for families to share and treasure.
From Children's Laureates Michael Rosen and Chris Riddell, the bestselling team behind A Great Big Cuddle, comes a first book of nursery rhymes. Flying pigs, wobbling plates of jelly and a giant who trembles whenever he meets a mouse: welcome to the topsy-turvy world of nursery rhymes. Inspired by his lifelong fascination with these peculiar poems, Michael Rosen has placed familiar playground songs alongside forgotten gems for a seminal new collection. Brought to vivid life by Chris Riddell's magnificent pictures, expect familiar faces, from little Jumping Joan to Miss Mary Mack - but also plenty of surprises... With forty rhymes to choose from, this book is sure to prove a bedtime favourite. "Huggable and exuberant ... makes you want to smile and stomp to the rhythm." - The Sunday Times on A Great Big Cuddle
