My Rhino Plays the Xylophone

Xylophonic Rhino

by Graham Denton (A&C Black)

I like this book. It is chock full of groaningly awful puns that are so bad they’re brilliant – and they make really good fun reading for children. Many of the poems are funny – which bears out the ‘poems to make you giggle’ strapline on the cover. But, most importantly, the writing is literate and clever and a fine example of how to encourage children to enjoy and participate in word play.
