Shortlisted for the CLPE Poetry Award 2011, which honours excellence in poetry written for children.

Everybody Was a Baby Once by Allan Ahlberg
Meet witches, snowmen, lizards and favourite nursery-rhyme characters in this joyful poetry collection for infants of every age! One day a boy went walking, and walked into a store. He bought a pound of sausages, and put them on the floor. The boy began to whistle, he whistled up a tune. And all the little sausages danced around the room...
The inspired creators of The Runaway Dinner are proud to serve you up a shouting, screaming, smiling, whistling, playing, chasing, rhyming romp for children of every age. Nineteen poems, funny, wistful, delightfully illustrated, introduce a merry cast of babies, witches, sausages, robbers and favourite nursery-rhyme characters that will enchant everybody who is - or was - a baby! It combines original poems from acclaimed author Allan Ahlberg and classic verses from the endlessly talented Anon, every one gloriously illustrated by Bruce Ingman. This book is jacketed.
'Always thoughtful, often funny, Ahlberg's poems are a celebration of being young and eager.' - The Guardian
