Best-selling children's author Kaye Umansky and well-loved illustrator Chris Fisher have teamed up again to produce the latest in the Nonsense Rhymes series. There are poems about, amongst others, a chess-playing cheetah, a wolf called Keith and a gorilla who eats vanilla ice-cream! The funny, colourful illustrations capture the humour in the poems as well as they did in the previous two books in the series. Kaye Umansky's first book, Pongwiffy, won the Nottinghamshire Book Award and has sold over 150,000 copies. She has written and published picture books, song books, rhymes and novels for Puffin, Bodley Head, HarperCollins, Hodder, A & C Black and the BBC. Kaye has also won The Times Educational Supplement Award for Junior Music Book of the Year. Chris Fisher is well-known for his vivid, lively illustrative style, and has illustrated over 40 titles for Walker Books, Hodder, Puffin, Scholastic and HarperCollins.
