I Like To Put Food in My Welly

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Graffeg

Children will adore this brilliantly surreal book of poems, which get sillier for the longer you read them. For instance, a poem that begins sensibly:

'You pull a rabbit from your hat.
You stroke a cuddly purring cat.
You wipe your feet upon the mat.

But then quickly becomes hilariously zany:

You pull a rabbit from a cat.
You stroke a cuddly purring mat.
You wipe your feet upon a hat.'

Each permutation of the poem sits on a new page and is accompanied by Max Low’s thick-lined cartoonish illustrations that try to imagine what the strange juxtapositions of the image would look like: illustrations showing a character climbing a cup of tea, for instance, or a gleeful child boating on the back of a snake, will have children in stitches.

As well as a colourful and brilliant read, Korsner’s word play is ideal for helping little ones learn when short sentences are right or wrong – can a mat purr? Should you wipe your feet on a hat?  – and allow for plenty of laughing, talk and fun questioning.
