When I was a boy,
I had a favourite treat.
It was when my mum made . . .
Ohhh! I LOVED chocolate cake.
Fantastically funny and full of silly noises, this is Michael Rosen's love letter to every child's favourite treat, chocolate cake. Brought to life as a picture book for the first time with brilliant and characterful illustrations by Kevin Waldron.
With a plethora of puns, ludicrous wordplay and completely ridiculous rhythms, these ten books – from the fantastic to downright hilarious – are a great introduction to verse for aspiring poets.
Michael Rosen, Afua Hirsch and Jon Sopel join a range of Penguin authors, including doctors, teachers, midwives, scientists and more, to tell the story of Covid-19 and reflect on the tragedies, small victories and unsung heroes from 12 months that transformed the world.
