Whenever I'm tired of being me I swing around like a chimpanzee. Are you tired of being you? Here's a whole bookful of things you can do! There are rhymes to make you wriggle and giggle, shrug and sigh, snap like a crocodile and slither like a snake. Julia Donaldson's verse jumps off the page and Nick Sharratt's snazzy illustrations add to the fun.
Bright, bold and accessible, these rhymes are packed full of noises and actions, making them perfect for joining in.
This book will animate, engage and stimulate babies and have nursery classes jumping about with noisy enthusiasm. Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week
"... a perfect read-aloud, giggle-along-to book by two of the most distictive creators of contemporary children's books." Publishing News
