Mustard, Custard, Grumble Belly & Gravy

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Review

Funny poems are a great way to share a quick read with a child. Michael Rosen breaks down barriers with his poems for children, creating an infectious informality and irreverence that brilliantly captures the funny moments of everyday life. Quentin Blake's illustrations perfectly complement and bring to life Michael Rosen's poems.

The book also includes a CD with every poem in the book, read by Michael Rosen himself. Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 2007-2009, has also written a letter specially for the Letterbox Club to accompany this book.
