John Foster is expert at choosing just the kind of poem to appeal to the subversive side of every child and Korky Paul's illustrations take each verse even further towards total madness. If this combination of verse and illustration doesn't make you laugh out loud then you must have missed out on the sense of humour gene. Guardian Educationshow more
