Hoddley poddley; Full of fun; Rhymes and verse; For everyone!; A mix of nursery rhymes, and poems ideal for sharing with young children. Hoddley Poddley is a perfect first book of rhymes and poems for young children. Full of fun it is a rich mix of traditional and nonsense verse, classic favourites and lively poems by modern writers. Just right for reading aloud and joining in! Carefully chosen by Margaret Mayo, a master storyteller for the very young, and brilliantly brought to life by twenty-two of the best-loved children's illustrators, this makes a wonderful poetry gift book for the early years.
Margaret Mayo's love of folk and fairy tales, and her deep and wide-ranging knowledge of their sources, has led her to write many highly acclaimed collections for children. For Orchard, these include The Orchard Book of Magical Tales, The Orchard Book of Magical Animal Tales, The Orchard Book of Creation Stories, First Fairy Tales and First Bible Stories. She lives in Brighton.
