The Book of Complete Nonsense, Paperback


Come bathe in stew, and dine on meals of eels or worms or jellied gnats, See shoes and ships and sealing wax and fuzzy bears and owls and cats, Depart for the Land where the Bong Tree grows or the Land of Bumbley Boo Find sky in your pie and teatrays in the sky and a place where mice say moo.

But be warned of the things that lurk and linger, the creatures that snatch and shock Be sure to bamboozle the Blunderbat and beware the Jabberwock!

If rhymes and riddles your brain have fried For shame! then set this book aside, But daring children, more courageous, Will take a peek inside these pages...Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can have a go at creating your own nonsense verse!
