'Don't put confetti on the spaghetti/ And don't squash peas on your knees/ Don't put ants in your pants/ Don't put mustard in the custard'

Writer and broadcaster Michael Rosen breaks down barriers with his poems for children, creating an infectious informality and irreverence that captures the very funny (and sometimes sad) moments of family life.

Acclaimed artist Quentin Blake's much-loved loopily anarchic illustrations perfectly complement and bring to life Rosen's poems. His deceptively simple illustrations are witty, sophisticated and subtle, all with huge child-appeal.

Rosen and Blake are one of the most popular and enduring partnerships writing and illustrating for children today. In the 1980s they collaborated on You Can't Catch Me and Don't Put Mustard in the Custard . This book brings together the poems and illustrations from those two books, with some new illustrations and an introduction specially written by Michael Rosen.
