Synopsis

Jelly Boots, Smelly Boots by Michael Rosen

A riotous celebration of words - silly words, funny words, words you only use in your own family, new words, old words, and the very best words in the right order. Melon Melon squashy, melon sloshy.

My friend Helen's eating melon.

So far, so good with Helen and her melon.

But here's what I'm tellin' Helen:

'Don't SIT on your melon, Helen!'

Michael Rosen is the bestselling author of We're Going on a Bear Hunt, along with many other picture books and collections of poetry.
