Giles Andreae Pair

Nobody does rollicking rhymes like this man, and here the jolly pictures are just as lovely as the words. Don’t be a kid without them. Have you heard of Giles Andreae? He’s one of Britain’s best-loved poets. In fact, this talented man has many names, like Purple Ronnie and Edward Monkton. But we don’t care what he calls himself, as long as he keeps writing books like these! So much for any small person to love: rhythm, rhyme and glorious colour pictures. Explore a tropical jungle world – and meet the minibeasts at the bottom of your garden!

  • Two favourites from a picture book dream team
  • Giles Andreae is one of the UK’s best-loved poets
