4.5 stars Och Aye the G'Nu is a book of poetry for children (and young-at-heart adults) by Scottish-born Australian rock singer Jimmy Barnes. It is produced by The Wiggles and the delightful hardcover book has lots of cute illustrations by Kat Chadwick. The main character is a wildebeest who lives in Glasgow Zoo, whose name is Och Aye: he's Och Aye the G'Nu. Barnes dedicated it to his grandchildren and prefaces the poems with a letter. There are seven poems, six of which manage to creatively find words that rhyme with gnu. There's lots of witty word play, including the title page for each poem: "Poem G'Number 1". The book includes a bonus CD on which Barnes reads the poems (with piano and sound effects), so that young readers can listen and read along. There is also an associated (but separate) album of songs performed by Barnes and The Wiggles. This is sure to be a popular little book for children of any age, and their parents and grandparents too. Great fun!



Och Aye I certainly enjoyed the poems.


Such a lovely blend of the most unlikely characters to form a friendship. Life lessons to be learnt.
