A collection of simple, witty story poems told in engaging rhyming couplets. The Cat on the Mat is Flat is followed by others about the Duck in the Truck in the Muck and Ed and Ted and Ted’s Dog Fred. All have a strong rhythm to carry the story on and all include a large dose of humour. ~ Julia Eccleshare
Features a rat with a bat and a very flat cat and a frog in a bog with a jet-rocket log, but the duck in the truck might just suck them all up. This work presents a collection of utterly nonsensical, totally irreverent rhymes.

Any beginning reader will find it charmingly slapstick and fun. --Armchair Interviews
