Synopsis

The Word Party by Richard Edwards

'Loving words clutch crimson roses, Rude words sniff and pick their noses, Sly words come dressed up as foxes, Short words stand on cardboard boxes, Common words tell jokes and gabble, Complicated words play Scrabble ...' Read aloud, these poems will have an immediate impact and will bring enjoyment to both children and adults. The line drawings by John Lawrence, one of our finest illustrators, are also a delight.
