Following on from the success of Little Bo Peep and more (four nursey rhymes about sheep), Donovan Bixley now turns his attention to cats. Cat Rhymes includes four nursery rhymes about cats, set in New Zealand. Here are 'Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat', 'Two Little Kittens', and 'Hey Diddle Diddle' as you've never seen them, with a Kiwi take and with Donovan's vibrant, amusing illustrations. Fun for the kids -- and fun for the adults! (For pre-schoolers (mostly).
