Rascally Rhymes gently pokes fun at the foibles of children, and the playful, lively rhymes are written in a way that appeals at different levels to both parents and children. Here you will find Abigail who has a face “that’s as sweet as an angel, but when she sings her song, it turns strangely bestial” and Ian who “ate worms and toads and rocks a la mode.” The Quill and Quire, the Canadian publishing industry magazine states that Preston’s “vivid illustrations are well-suited to the book’s playful nature… It’s a book children will want to look at after you’re done reading.”

Jordan Troutt is a poet, critic, philosopher, craftsman and expert fly fisherman. A product of higher education, he enjoys low forms of humour, frequently speaking in rhymes and making up silly songs. It was serendipity that led him to write his first children’s book, and now he intends to keep publishing until he runs out of ideas. He lives in Southwestern Ontario with his family and many pets.

“Jordan Troutt has penned a witty and re-readable book of deadpan rhymes… With silly wit that’s a hairsbreadth from nonsense, Troutt seems to channel the spirit of Lewis Carroll … Sarah Preston-Bloor’s whimsical illustrations are an ideal complement to the verses, colourfully depicting wide-eyed little darlings in a variety of misadventures.” - Our Children Magazine“Troutt perfectly blends an upper level alphabet book with rhymes to produce a humorous selection of poetry. The illustrations are expressive and go hand-in-hand with the poems. This collection of rhymes is very entertaining and full of silly fun, making it great for storytelling.” - Resource Links“[The] vivid illustrations are well- suited to the book’s playful nature... The children in the story have little button noses and they’re often surrounded by animal friends, like puppies, cats, and baby chicks. It’s a book children will want to look at after you’re done reading.” - Quill & Quire
