Reviews Be the first to review this title
A riotous celebration of words and a modern take on cautionary tales - featuring advice on parrots, gravy, mathematics, castles (bouncy), spiders, vegetables (various), breakfast, cakes, and removing ducks from soup.&#10;<i>&#10;Advice comes in many shapes. </i>&#10;<i>Poems come in many shapes. </i>&#10;<i>And so, it follows, poems of advice come in many shapes too. </i>&#10;<i>Sometimes they look you in the eye and say, 'Do this! Don't do that!' </i>&#10;<i>Sometimes they sidle up beside you and whisper, 'Have you ever thought about </i>&hellip; <i>?'</i>&#10;&#10;<i>Not everything in this book is necessarily </i>good<i> advice, and not all of it is </i>sensible <i>advice. (But if you take the </i>bad <i>or </i>un-sensible <i>advice and </i>don't <i>follow it, then it may become useful advice in its own way.)</i>&#10;&#10;Filled with colour illustrations and packed with silly rhymes, witty wordplay and thought-provoking story poems, this collection will delight children of all ages.
