Nervus Rex And Other Rhymes  Written By Robin Bennett   Illustrated By Kate Shannon

A complete world in a slim volume, packed with original characters and brilliant, funny rhymes – some great poetry even.

- BBC Belfast

Just like Hilaire Belloc writing in a room with Roald Dahl leaning over his shoulder.

- BBC Worcester

Scary monsters in the dark,

who hide in bushes in the park,

come out and chomp their yellow fangs,

and terrorize my bed in gangs.

They moan and roll their yellow eyes,

they come by buses in disguise.

They've even learnt to get tube passes,

by wearing wigs and wearing glasses . . .
