"A gorgeous book" Purchased on Mighty Ape

I love this book and I am very pleased to have it in my personal early childhood library. I always read it to the children in a “Scottish” accent (the best I can) and the children love to say “Nickertty-Nackertty, Noo-Noo-Noo” when the time comes. It has a scary theme which appeals, but with comedy and rhythm which makes it fun to read and to listen to.


'There once was an ogre called Gobbler Magoo
who lived in a swamp where the wild weeds grew,
and captured a maker of good tasty stew.
Nicketty-nacketty, noo-noo-noo'

A humorous story in rhyme, and with every verse ending with "nicketty nacketty noo noo noo" this book has catchy repetition that will find your child repeating these lines with you as you read the story together.
