Creepy Crawly Calypso by Tony Langham


Creepy Crawly Calypso by Tony Langham

Jump and jive with this jolly band of insects to the creepy crawly calypso beat! From spiders to fireflies, butterflies to centipedes, Debbie Harter's humorous illustrations perfectly match the Caribbean spirit of this jaunty rhyming text, which introduces children to cardinal and ordinal numbers - and takes them straight into the marvellous world of mini-beasts!
