Description

I stuck my toes
In my nose
And I couldn’t get them out…

Silly, funny, and outrageous, Toes in My Nose is the book that launched Sheree Fitch’s career as Canada’s premiere nonsense poet. From Popcorn Pete and Mabel Murple to Zelba Zinnamon, these are some of the best-loved poems and characters in Canadian children’s literature.

In this twenty-fifth anniversary edition, award-winning illustrator Sydney Smith’s new illustrations hilariously portray a neighbourhood of kids flying to the moon, playing banjo with orangutans, and bathing with submarines. Toes in My Nose will introduce a whole new generation to Sheree Fitch’s magnificent feat of imagination.

About the Authors
Sheree Fitch

Sheree Fitch's first two books, Toes in My Nose (1987) and Sleeping Dragons All Around (1989), launched her career as a poet, rhymster, and a “kind of Canadian female Dr. Seuss.” Fitch has won almost every major award for Canadian childrenÕs literature since then, including the 2000 Vicky Metcalf Award for a Body of Work Inspirational to Canadian Children. She has over twenty-five books to her credit, including her bestselling and critically praised adult novel, Kiss the Joy As It Flies (2008). Fitch's home base is the East Coast of Canada.
