Faustin Charles has specially created for this collection over 40 new rhymes inspired by traditional nursery rhymes and all featuring animal characters. The rhymes are illustrated throughout by Michael Terry, illustrator of the bestselling The Selfish Crocodile, and whose animal portrayals have become legendary. Combined with a fantastic audio CD that has Faustin Charles narrating the poems with lots of amazing animal sounds and noises, this will make a much-loved and much-listened to collection for younger readers.

Michael has also created his own character, Captain Wag, whose books he both writes and illustrates. Michael lives in Hythe, Kent.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2—Charles uses characters from his picture book The Selfish Crocodile (Little Tiger, 1999) to offer new versions of traditional rhymes. "Three brave mice, three brave mice,/See how they run, see how they run;/They all ran after the crocodile,/Who gave them a hug and a toothy smile...." Lions, giraffes, wild pigs, monkeys, and other animals appear in the rhymes. Terry's bright, amusing illustrations add plenty of energy. Even the spread of the crocodile's "teeth, teeth shining bright" isn't scary. On the accompanying CD, the author recites or sings, with a few jungle sound effects to spice up the presentation. With so many nursery-rhyme collections available, this one need not go to the top of a purchase list unless Charles's picture book is popular.—Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato END
