Rhyme Stew by Roald Dahl is an irresistible collection for older children and adults alike.
'Mary, Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
"I live with my brat in a high-rise flat
so how in the world would I know"'
Rhyme Stew bubbles over with Roald Dahl's inimitable humour and invention.
'Hey diddle diddle
We're all on the fiddle
And never get up until noon.
We only take cash
Which we carefully stash.
And we work by the light of the moon.'
***Wonderfully illustrated by Quentin Blake***
