Wiggly Wiggly

By Michael Rosen
Illustrated by Chris Riddell

Wiggle, jiggle and giggle along with this board-book of playtime rhymes, collected from A Great Big Cuddle.

A board-book collection of playtime rhymes from not one but two Children's Laureates. Join a band of mischievous monkeys, tigers, lions, elephants and bears as they tippy-tap, boing-boing, wiggle-wiggle and wave hello – and goodbye! The most energetic poems from the award-winning anthology A Great Big Cuddle have found the perfect new home in this friendly format. Michael Rosen has adapted his rhymes so that even the very littlest readers can join in; Chris Riddell's vibrant, extraordinary pictures fizz off the page. Pairing two of the biggest names in the world of children’s books, Wiggly Wiggly is a small book that contains a lot of action!

  • A double Laureate book.
  • A Great Big Cuddle was a critically acclaimed bestseller and winner of the CLPE Poetry Award.
  • The rhymes in this collection have been adapted from the versions in A Great Big Cuddle to perfectly suit the new board-book format.
