Synopsis

Wriggle and Roar by Julia Donaldson

Whenever I'm tired of being me I swing around like a chimpanzee. Are you tired of being you? Here's a whole bookful of things you can do! There are rhymes to make you wriggle and giggle, shrug and sigh, snap like a crocodile and slither like a snake. Julia Donaldson's verse jumps off the page and Nick Sharratt's snazzy illustrations add to the fun.

Bright, bold and accessible, these rhymes are packed full of noises and actions, making them perfect for joining in.
