William New has created a wondrously zany collection of rhyming verse, ranging from the playful to the mysterious. Included are percussive nonsense rhymes, puzzle poems, joyful dances with anagrams and gentle haiku. The poems are complemented by Vivian Bevis's full-page, full-colour illustrations, which capture the high-spirited and impetuous qualities of the verse. This sturdy hardcover picture book will delight both the early reader and the many adults who enjoy introducing children to the sound and rhythm of verse.

William New is one of Canada's outstanding men of letters: well known for his children's books - Vanilla Gorilla, Dream Helmet and Llamas in the Laundry - his adult poetry, his writings on Canadian and postcolonial literature, and his literary criticism (some 30 volumes). He is on the editorial board of the New Canadian Library and the editor of the monumental Encyclopedia of Literature in Canada (U of Toronto Press). For many years he was the editor of the journal Canadian Literature,and he is presently on the board of the New Canadian Library. He is Professor Emeritus of English and Canadian literature at the University of B.C. He lives in Vancouver.
