He’s a handsome young calf, he’s a wildebeest, too.
But in Scotland they call him young Och Aye the G’Nu…
Jimmy Barnes, Aussie rock legend and grandad, has penned this delightful collection of poetry for the young grandson he affectionately calls G’Nu…
Read along with Jimmy in this treasured keepsake for sweet g’nus everywhere.
I think perhaps I enjoy listening to legendary Australian rocker Jimmy Barnes read fanciful children’s poetry more than I enjoy him singing! 🙂
This is such fun – a delight for children – and adults too. I love the singalong CD of the recorded poems of Och Aye the G’Nu – the words come alive when you hit play – such a wonderful playfulness here. I am sure your child will love to sing and stomp and dance to this too.
Oh, my, this is great, Carol! What a great way to branch out, too, for Barnes. I think it’s a lovely idea!
I think they need to make a colouring book to go with it Margot. I like listening to the accent- mild as it is.
