Description

Melvis the monster
And Elvis the elf
Were hunting for books
On the library shelf…

From noisy daytime chants to soothing bedtime verses, this irresistible medley of story poems, schoolyard rhymes, and pure nonsense is vividly captured in whimsical and energetic art by celebrated illustrator Jeremy Tankard.
