CUSTARD ON TOAST


'A BRILLIANT BOOK OF WONDERFUL RHYMES FOR KIDS THAT WILL KEEP THEM LAUGHING FOR HOURS'
(Matt Lucas. Comedian and Television Personality)

THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD!

Witty, and sometimes bizarre poems which really engage the young (and not so young) reader. The rich vocabulary and figurative language are perfect for reading together. They will make you laugh, cry and think. Children will relate to topics ranging from animal welfare to the environment, as well as their own frailties and insecurities, all captured elegantly in the wonderful illustrations.
Review by CY, Primary School teacher

Amazing, fantastic and brilliant - will make you laugh your socks off!
Review by Charlie, aged 10

I think this book is great! Wonderful, fun poems with helpful discussion points. Definitely suitable for libraries and children's book clubs.

Odd Socks

My brother, me and Papa,
We love to wear odd socks
We make sure that they’re all mixed up
Inside the odd sock box!

Six socks we have for playing
For working and for best
Striped ones, patterned, red or blue
Each different from the rest

Baby First Aid

Saves time for Mum and Grandma
From finding matching pairs
We say "We’ve come from Planet Mars”
To anyone who stares

Cos clothes are just for wearing
Grow into them, then out
Coordinated colours
Who knows what that’s about?

Paediatric CPR

Some mornings when I’m rushing
For my underwear I hunt
My pants will end up inside out
And sometimes back to front

We all get dressed the way we like
Mum says that we can choose
So why does she get frazzled
When we go out in odd shoes?

Rhyme and Reason

These poems you'll find are appealing
Illustrations and messages numerous.
A book that's unique,
So why not take a peak?
It's a world both inspiring and humorous!

It's primarily written for children
But so many boxes it ticks
You can read to each other
As it says on the cover
Whether 6 or 106


Readers/Reviewers' comments

This inspirational poetry is a great starting point for much exciting moral discussion and cross-curricula activities.

A glorious collection of poems. Some are witty, some are educational. Some have a clear message. BUT all are fun, no matter what age you are.

Your uniquely brilliant children's book has been a joy to share with children at the Ark

This is such a wonderfully wittily-written book of poems and the illustrations complement the poetry beautifully. I bought this book as a present, but I just might keep it for myself!

We’ve just read your book, cover to cover. We’re very impressed as it’s passed every test and must be the best! The illustrations are all superb!
