Tadpoles Nursery Rhyme Series


This series of 12 books by well known children’s poets Wes Magee, Brian Moses and Mick Gowar, has a new slant on nursery rhymes. Each book has a traditional nursery rhyme followed by a humorous new rhyme based on the original.  For instance, in Little Miss Muffett, the alternative rhyme begins: ‘Little Miss Mumpet found an old trumpet….’. By keeping close to the rhythm and pattern of the original version, young readers are helped to read the text for themselves, as well as being able to enjoy the humour.
