9781406308884: Pumpkin Grumpkin. by Grace Nichols and John Agard

This is a fantastic collection of nonsense poems from all around the world. Have you ever heard of a doctopus or a hippopotamustn't? Have you ever visited the Ning Nang Nong or lived in a floorless room? Did you know that in Japan cows go 'mo', in Vietnam they go 'o-o' and that in the Philippines they go 'ngna-ngna'? Here is an absolutely wonderful bunch of silly and charming poems from all around the world - from classics like the Jabberwocky, to great contemporary nonsense like "The Computer's First Proverb" - with superb illustrations by Satoshi Kitamura.
