Synopsis

Pumpkin Grumpkin by John Agard, Grace Nichols

This is a fantastic collection of nonsense poems from all around the world. Have you ever heard of a doctopus or a hippopotamustn't? Have you ever visited the Ning Nang Nong or lived in a floorless room? Did you know that in Japan cows go 'mo', in Vietnam they go 'o-o' and that in the Philippines they go 'ngna-ngna'? Here is an absolutely wonderful bunch of silly and charming poems from all around the world - from classics like the Jabberwocky, to great contemporary nonsense like The Computer's First Proverb - with superb illustrations by Satoshi Kitamura.
