Synopsis

What did you put in your pocket?
What did you put in your pocket?
In your pockety pockety pocket
Early Monday morning?

No matter what you put in your pockets, you'll get a whole lot of ideas from Beatrice Schenk de Regnier's catchy, cumulative rhymes. Together with Michael Grejniec's zany, bright illustrations, they'll make you look at pockets -- and the days of the week -- in a whole new way!
