Illus: Naya and Kostya Lazareva. Little Steps Publishing, 2018. ISBN: 9781925545968.
Themes: Poetry, Rhyme. Amusing poems about smelly things, animals and impossible things are presented with light and breezy illustrations with a quirky quality in this short anthology. The thirteen poems are written in simple rhyming couplets and are never longer than eight lines of text. Without setting the world on fire, it is a simple example of a poetry anthology.
This is probably not the best or most inspiring example of child-friendly doggerel, but some may find it an appealing faster alternative for pre-bedtime reading compared to a longer narrative!
