If I Had a Million Onions

“If I had a million onions, I know what I would make” are the opening lines in this delightful hardcover collection of twentysix humourous poems for children. The poems vary in length, form and subject. Included are concrete poems, tongue twisters, nonsense poems and wordplay poems. Subjects, such as onions, monsters, blizzards, bumper cars, relatives and play contribute to this assorted collection. The colourful sketches, which accompany each poem, are as fanciful and witty as the poems. Sheree Fitch is an award-winning and bestselling author of books for children.
