Creating great rhymes that scan and read well is a skill that should not be underestimated. Jon Gadsby has succeeded with flair in Nothing rhymes with elephant.
Poor old elephants get a raw deal. How on earth can they write poems about themselves when they can find no words to rhyme with “elephant?” There are some excellent comparisons with animals who have it easy. “And a rabbit out of habit shares a carrot with a parrot, and a seal can make a meal upon an eel and have its fill.”
Wonderful to read, with great illustrations and genius examples of rhyme, this is perfect for an audience of all ages.
