If you only want one collection of poetry on your child’s bookshelf then it has to be this stunning collection by best-selling author Michael Rosen and illustrator Quentin Blake whose pictures complement and bring to life the4 words so perfectly. Alone or together with your child you will be totally transported into the words and pictures and if the book wasn’t good enough it also comes with a CD of the poems read by the author.
"You Can't Catch Me" and "You Can't Put Mustard in the Custard" were ground-breaking, in that they were full colour illustrated new poems for children. Both books went on to be best-sellers. This work includes an introduction by Michael Rosen and an audio CD of the book, with the poems read by Michael.
