Synopsis

Sometimes I wonder

do lions use irons,

Do poodles

eat noodles,

Can chickens

read Dickens...

WHAT'S THAT? You don't know the answers, you haven't a clue? That's okay -- sometimes it's fun just to wonder. In this collection of playful poems there are musings about everything in a child's world, from "A Day at the Beach" to "My Friend's Freckles" (do they go all the way down to your toes?). The short verses are a delight to read aloud and are brought to life in funny, imaginative pictures. Thi book is sure to inspire plenty of giggles as it challenges readers to find the silliness in their own surroundings.
