Winner of the 1990 Emil/Kurt Maschler Award this is a book of noisy verses, singalong songs and uproarious poems in which each rhyme is a celebration of dins and rows from ducks' quacks to crashing pans.

A super collection of short rhymes which children will love listening to and joining in with. Full of simple sounds and crazy pictures, this is Quentin Blake at his best. The pictures and text are in perfect harmony, inviting readers and listeners to make plenty of noise as they read the rhymes. This is a perfect book for sharing with groups but perhaps not the best choice for bedtime reading! -- Philippa ReeceReview:
"I knew it was a classic the instant I saw it . . . The simple verse is brilliant for reading aloud and is perfectly complemented by Blake's spiky, anarchic pictures. An absolute must for the under-fives" ( Parents Magazine)
"The illustrations dance through the pages with the speed and riotous rhythm of the poems. Children really begin to get a sense of what language can do when they experience this book" ( Child Education)
"Blake's exuberant illustrations positively leap off the page and perfectly match his infectious rhymes. This will have everyone joining in" ( The Good Book Guide)
