9780091768799: The Big Book of Nonsense: Poems to Make You Laugh Out Loud

The closest relative of man They say, is the orang-utan; And when I look at Grandpapa, I realize how right they are! Jam-packed with the very best nonsense rhymes and tricky tongue-twisters, this wonderfully exuberant collection contains quirky, colour illustrations from Colin West and lashings of his wildly wacky verse! Divided into sections to satisfy nonsense-lovers everywhere, this brilliant bumper book will keep children in fits for hours and may inspire them to become rollicking rhyme-makers themselves! Chapters include: Curious Creatures, Tricky Tongue-twisters, Funny Folk, Moments with Monsters, Dotty Ditties, Vicious Verses, Hopeless History, and Stories in Stanzas.

Review:

Should be in every teacher's library, on hand should an opportunity for five minutes of off-message, anarchic laughter present itself. -- TES Primary, October 2001

About the Author:

Colin West studied at the Royal College of Art where he was taught by Quentin Blake. He has seven books published by Hutchinson and draws his inspiration from early cautionary verses that 'make Hilaire Belloc's later tales read like nursery rhymes!'
