Age 7+. This is a little pot of gold with lots of clever rhymes guaranteed to make you laugh. Limericks have been endearingly popular for longer than most can remember and Antony Wootten’s There was an old fellow from Skye has now added to the collection. The limericks are funny, romantic or gory or even a mixture of all three. They rhyme and they’re jolly and fun for all the family, so dip in and find out about the spy from Skye, the inventor called Max, a surgeon named Wheeze, the old lady called Myrtle and the fellow from Gwent to name just a few, or even the flying nun:

A nun known as Sister McBickers

Startled the Priest and the vicars

By learning to fly

Like an angel on high,

Having fitted a jet in her knickers.
