Summary

Each of us has giggled uncontrollably as a child or adult at some silly nothing, some play on words, some nonsense that, for a moment at least, makes the world seem genuinely funny, if a little mad.
In this volume of nonsense verse, you’ll find many favourites to take you back to the time and place where most things are a little upside down or back to front, including favourites from Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll, and quite a few others to giggle along with. The selections in this volume are:

So fun.

Nigel Planer reading silly poetry--what more do you need to know about it?! Even my 3yo is highly entertained.
