  • Ridiculous RhymesFantastic stuff to introduce youngsters to poetry before they go all silly and wander like clouds.Dorset Echo
  • Teasing Tongue-TwistersKeep this book well away from any grandparents with false teeth – attempting these tongue-twisters could send their pearlie-whites flying. Mouth-numbingly difficult and rib-ticklingly funny, Teasing Tongue-twisters is a brilliant little collection.Funday Times
