Review: What A Lot of Nonsense – Sheena Knowles & Jonathan Bentley

What a Lot of Nonsense
Sheena Knowles & Jonathan Bentley
HarperCollins Australia
ISBN: 9781460756140

Description:
From the author of the internationally bestselling EDWARD and EDWINA THE EMU, comes a book that presents readers with a puzzle – to find the anagrams hidden on every page.

Dear reader, please take time to note
Two ways to read this book I wrote.
The first way is for everyone,
Just read the book, enjoy the fun.
The second way will challenge those
Who like to look beyond the prose.
Who’d like to ACT just like a ‘cat’
(And that’s an anagram, in fact).

Join in the fun with a host of quirky animals, and find out why a bear doesn’t want to be bare, a seal goes to a sale, and a dingo is doing a dance.
Sheena Knowles, author of internationally bestselling Edward the Emu and Edwina the Emu, has teamed up with renowned illustrator Jonathan Bentley to create a joyous book that fires up the imagination and revels in the joy of words.’

My View:
With lovely rhyming prose and colourful images this is a book that will delight your pre-schooler as they sit alongside you as you share this read.

Our grandson is turning four in April – he laughed and giggled as I read out loud to him. Such a joyful sound. I love encouraging him to read and enjoy words ( and pictures), this book is a perfect treat for him.

  1. He’s turning four?!?! When did that happen?! It’s hard to believe, isn’t it? At any rate, Carol, the book looks terrific, and what a great way to teach little ones about the fun you can have with letters and words.

    • Time is flying by isn’t it Margot ? Yes four next month. Books, art… any form of creativity fostered at an early age is fabulous. Our grandson had been read too since he was a few weeks old … and now every night before bed he “reads” three books or one long book. He is now interested in the words … 🙂📙📕
