He had a knack for iambic pentameter. It’s difficult not to get the rhythm!

They were never very popular in England which is a shame. I discovered them when my second child was young, as an American relation bought them for her cousin. They are great books to read to children you can have so much fun with them.

When I was a kid, I went to the library and borrowed books for myself and my little brother. He would always ask me to get animal books and Dr. Seuss books. I was happy to oblige.
