A hilariously sticky collection of illustrated poems from the award-winning Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross.
Have you heard the tale of Felicity Finch who was prone to pinch? Or the one about Vince the Mince, the vegetarian dog who took his sprouts far too seriously...
This hilarious collection offers a grisly mix of gruesome cautionary verses, in which assorted characters meet the stickiest of ends!
“The illustrations are great, and there's plenty of gross things going on to delight children . . . A good way to get some disgusterous little boys reading poems!”
“A hilarious collection of macabre rhymes with echoes of Roald Dahl. A must!”
Peters Bookselling Services
“Perfect for reading aloud, the richly imagined and brilliantly illustrated retribution that befalls such characters will delight all who hear these verses.”
Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading4Kids, Book of the Month
“Do your children love rhymes? This collection of 26 verses will sway them. Brilliantly conceived by the multi-talented Jeanne Willis...illustrated by the superb Tony Ross.”
“These poems are like a modern day Struwwelpeter with a dash of Revolting Rhymes that will have you laughing and groaning at the same time.”
