Synopsis

Animals by Wes Magee, Tracey Tucker

Award-winning poet Wes Magee's fantastical and humourous rhyming text is vividly illustrated capturing strange and wonderful scenarios in each of the Topsy Turvy titles. Rhymes are a unique way of introducing children to the imaginative potential of stories, word play and craetivity. Coupled with detailed illustrations of a wild and wonderful topsy turvy world, this book provides a springboard for children to explore their imagination and develop their own reading and writing skills. Other titles in this series: * Topsy Turvy Journeys * Topsy Turvy Fairy Tales * Topsy Oceans

Reviews

The main messages children will pick up here are: that language is fun; and that if you give full rein to your imagination, anything can happen ... If like me, you believe that nursery rhymes should form the bedrock upon which a child can build a love of poetry, then this beautifully produced book may be of interest. Red Reading Hub
