Meet witches, snowmen, lizards and favourite nursery-rhyme characters in this joyful poetry collection for infants of every age! One day a boy went walking, and walked into a store. He bought a pound of sausages, and put them on the floor. The boy began to whistle, he whistled up a tune. And all the little sausages danced around the room...The inspired creators of "The Runaway Dinner" are proud to serve you up a shouting, screaming, smiling, whistling, playing, chasing, rhyming romp for children of every age. Nineteen poems that will enchant everybody who is - or was - a baby!
