Another collection of irresistible mirth and madness from those maestros of mayhem: Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton. Sure to become an audio classic. Read by award-winning narrator Stig Wemyss. Watch out! Here they come: Frogs, logs, bogs, dogs, cogs and flag-waving hogs. Sheds, sleds, head-biting dogs called Fred and over-fed whales called Ned. Rat-chasing cats, cat-chasing rats and extra large super-sized baseball bats.

Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton are a creative partnership that began with Just Tricking! in 1997 and now extends to six Just books and over a million copies sold. Their partnership continued with the award-winning The Bad Book, the off-the-wall success of The Cat on the Mat is Flat (which has been shortlisted for the CBC Book of the Year for Younger Readers award) and, most recently, What Bumosaur is That? They are now published all over the world including the US, where Andy's Bum books have made the New York Times bestseller lists.
“Griffiths's innovative book for beginning readers collects nine short, intentionally silly snippets propelled by kid-pleasing, tongue-tripping verse. . . . Denton's edgy, stick-figure-filled sketches enhance the zaniness factor and the offbeat, ironic humor.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Imagine the outcome if Dr. Seuss, Dav Pilkey, and Lane Smith were locked in a room until they came up with a book for beginning or reluctant readers. These nine rhyming stories have action galore, plenty of dialogue, and ample pen-and-ink illustrations, all wrapped up in humor. . . . Even young people who are struggling to get the hang of reading may happily handle all 176 crazy pages.” ―School Library Journal
“Definitely not your parents' easy reader, but perfect for fans of Lane Smith's HAPPY HOCKEY FAMILY.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“Take one part Dr. Seuss, one part Edward Lear, place in a blender with a dash of Dav Pilkey and a bit of Cartoon Network juice . . . meant to be read as pure joy. It's a piece of candy eaten in secret between meals.” ―The Excelsior File (blog)
“This collection of stories is fun albeit with a touch of mayhem . . . This is a good book for beginning readers, in the same vein as THE CAT IN THE HAT and THE CAT IN THE HAT COMES BACK. It will likely spark a new rhyming nation of happy youngsters, some of whom will grow up to write their generation's outrageously funny advertising jingles . . . Any beginning reader will find it charmingly slapstick and fun.” ―Armchair Interviews
