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

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
