Night, night, Knight,' said one Knight to the other Knight the other night. 'Night, night, Knight.' An exuberant anthology of wordplay -- poetry, rhymes, riddles, tongue twisters, limericks, and other verbal tomfoolery. Michael Rosen's love and enthusiasm for language is infectious in this delightful, witty collection that's fun to read and even more fun to recite. From sections of Silly Patter to Nursery Crimes (familiar rhymes with a twist), Rosen knows well the humor that appeals to his young readers. Vibrant illustrations add a touch of visual wit as well.

Michael Rosen started writing as a teenager, when his mother needed some poems for Radio programs she was making. While at college, he wrote a play which was staged at the Royal Court theatre in London. Rosen's first book was published in 1974, and he is one of Britain's leading children's poets. Michael Rosen launched the National Year of Literacy project, which encouraged children to help produce an Anthology to be used during the Literacy Hour in primary schools. Children ages 4-11 were invited to submit poems and illustrations featuring their favorite tree. Rosen also led the final judging sessions to decide which submissions would be included.
