Custard and Companyby Ogden Nash (Author/Poet), Quentin Blake (Illustrator)
Tickle your funny bone!
An illustrated collection of 80 + humorous poems on variety of topics like animals, food and life! From the simplest verse appealing to children “ There goes the Wapiti, Hippety-hoppity!” to verses like “Children aren’t happy with nothing to ignore, And that’s what parents were created for…” there are numerous poems to please everyone in the family. Ogden Nash’s unconventional rhymes and droll verse makes him one of the country’s most popular humorous poets.
Ogden Nash verses are super silly and an enormous fun to read out aloud! The typical black and white art from Quentin Blake provide visual humor to these poems. It has been a big hit with our family, picking and laughing at few verses every day.
Here’s one of my favorites:-
If you have enjoyed Shel Silverstein poems, then this collection is a must read!
