Told through the eyes of a child, this colourful collection of rhyming stories uses eccentric characters to depict the difficulties of growing up. For some, there's trouble with bullying in the schoolyard and the daunting prospect of trying new things. For others, there are bizarre acts of rebellion and the hilarious mishaps that follow untruths told by mischievous parents. From hitchhiking aliens and misbehaving pets to misguided adventures in hot air balloons, there really is a poem for every occasion. Suitable for children ages 3-92.
