Can you tell a book by its cover? Not exactly with this delightful, full-colour poetry book for 4 to 8 year-olds. The cover gives just a taste of the illustrations and whimsical poems for children and their families in this unique collection.

A few poems are in rhyme, others in free verse. Some are serious. A number quite silly. Monsters lurk under beds, dogs dream about not being dogs. There are missing teeth grins, a girl in the window and even good luck fairies between the covers.
