I'm Just No Good At Rhyming

And Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-Ups

by Chris Harris and Lane Smith
Hardback
Publication Date: 31/10/2017
RRP  $29.99 $28.95

Forget what you think you know about poetry this is something totally different.

Chris Harris's I'm Just No Good At Rhyming combines wit, wordplay and nonsense with visual and verbal tricks to make you look at the world in a new and wonderfully upside-down way, reminiscent of Shel Silverstein.

This entirely unique collection offers a surprise around every corner, from the ongoing rivalry between the author and illustrator, to the mysteriously misnumbered pages that can only be deciphered by a certain code-cracking verse, to a poem that is 100% genuinely infinite.

Adding to the fun: Lane Smith, winner of the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal for There Is a Tribe of Kids, has spectacularly illustrated this extraordinary collection with nearly one hundred pieces of appropriately absurd art. It's a mischievous match made in heaven and the perfect gift for kids age seven and up.

"Smart and sweet, wild and wicked, brilliantly funny - it's everything a book for kids should be" BJ Novak, actor and bestselling author of The Book With No Pictures
