About this title

Synopsis:

Scare young children and intimidate their parents when you take the humble nursery rhyme and transform it into a display of linguistic acrobatics. Why use one world when ten will do? If you want to sound as though you've swallowed a dictionary, here are 100 nursery rhymes and their verbose translations to memorise and regurigitate at all children's parties.

From the Publisher:

?Mary had a callow sheep / With pellicule of niveous hue / Ubiquitous though Mary was / It was inured to pursue.?

Scare young children and intimidate their parents when you take the simple nursery rhyme and transform it into a display of linguistic acrobatics. If you want to sound as though you?ve ingested a thesaurus, here are 100 nursery rhymes and their long?winded translations to memorize and declaim at children?s parties. You?ll be the most popular person there!
