'Whizz, bang, orang-utan Hear his mighty roar As he stamps and as he stomps On the jungle floor.' John Foster Here is a collection of poems and rhymes for very young children. With themes ranging from funfairs, giants, and favourite foods, to seaside holidays, days in the park, and wobbly teeth, there are poems for every occasion. And the mix of traditional rhymes, limericks, lullabies, and comic verse adds up to an anthology to suit all moods and moments. There are contributions from Shirley Hughes, Quentin Blake, June Crebbin, Spike Milligan, and many, many more. Each poem is accompanied by full colour artwork-from a diverse range of illustrators including Tony Ross, Sue Heap, Lindsey Gardiner, and Stephen Lambert.
