They’re back! The inspired creators of The Runaway Dinner and The Pencil serve up a shouting, screaming, smiling, whistling, playing, chasing, rhyming romp. Nineteen impishly illustrated poems present a unique cast of babies and witches, sausages and robbers, and a few favorite nursery-rhyme characters sure to entice everybody who ever was a baby.
