Legendary Quentin Blake invites you to dive into the year with twelve wonderfully illustrated seasonal rhymes that will have you chuckling all the year round!

Discover the most entertaining way to spend the year: with a spot of spring cleaning (that ends in a mess), a summer picnic (invaded by ants), Halloween dress-up (or not, if you’re already scary) and the only thing to be done in December…

Reviews

Exuberantly illustrated

Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

This heartwarming book takes us through the calendar year and a rhyming story reflects each month wonderfully... Blake's immediately recognisable flourish gives this book instant appeal and his stamp on anything suggests quality and humour

Revels in a kind of bonkers Englishness

Evening Standard, Best Books of 2017

A book to treasure all year round

Andrea Reece, Lovereading4Kids, Book of the Month October 2017

Very funny, with lots of gentle humour and earthy illustrations from Quentin Blake that really capture the fizz and farce of close family life.
