 “A young bee was sitting on a flower one day  
when a bright coloured wasp flew her way. 
“Oh, he’s so handsome” was all she could say 
 and she couldn’t stop talking about him all day...”

inspired by reading bedtime stories to his own two little girls, Bertie's Bonkers book is full off silly situations , absurd stories and is beautifully illustrated by Kate Arnold which adds a fantastic visual dimension and brings the stories to life making a great experience for parent and child alike

This is a hilariously funny and fabulously illustrated little book of bonkers poems. A must read for both children and adults. I am on the wrong side of 75 and I loved every one. My grandchildren really adore it. Mike has the gift of seeing humour in every situation. I highly recommend it for some uplifting giggles!
