Children everywhere love the humorous writings of Michael Rosen. The Book of Nonsense is another excellent example of his work. It contains lots of incredibly funny rhymes and limericks, poems and wordplay that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike, all offering lots of opportunities for smiles, giggles and laughing out loud. Particularly appealing is the one entitled "The Long and Amazing Story of What Happened When We Went to the Game Last Week" "I was bored / they scored / we roared." The whole text is embellished with Claire Mackies excellent illustrations, which add extra humour and enjoyment. (Reluctant readers particularly could benefit, as the humour will attract them where other, drier, books fail.) Short listed for the Kate Greenaway award, this is suitable for children aged 7 years and older. --Susan Naylor
An enjoyable book which might stimulate children's own inclinations to mess about with language. (Books for Keeps)
The author has a child's ear for word sound and an eye for nutty humour. Clare Mackie's crackling illustrations add verve and vigour to each page. (Junior Education) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I think 3 is on the young side for this book but ok with lots of help from an adult. I can imagine children finding it laugh out loud funny as they get older. I'm guessing but I imagine my daughter still to be reading this age 9 or 10.
I think anything by Michael Rosen is a good buy.
The 1-star review is unfair as it refers to the seller, who was late to deliver, and not to the book itself, which is wonderfully silly - simply fantastic.
For young and old alike and thoroughly recommended.

I don't get Rosen at all (I could elaborate but don't want to dump on what others love!), but my daughter loves it. I'd give it 1 star, her 5 stars. So three it is.Published 4 months ago by Tele
