Description

Silly, funny, and outrageous, Toes in My Nose is the book that launched Sheree Fitch's career as Canada's premier 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.

The twenty-fifth-anniversary edition is now available in paperback, with Governor General's Award-winning illustrator Sydney Smith hilariously portraying 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.
