Yup, you got it, today’s gem is full of some very useful advice. It’s more of a list of things you possibly don’t want to do really, like inviting barn owls into your bed, sharing your toothbrush with a shark and letting a beaver in the basin. These are all eminently sensible recommendations.
“Please don’t use a tiger as a towel.
Really, please don’t use a tiger as a towel.
Tigers are not made of cotton,
And although they’re furred quite thickly
They can get cross very quickly.
And you’ll find they have a rather scary growl,
So please don’t use your tiger as a towel.”
Chocka block with rip-roaring rhyme and hilarious ideas, this is bound to spark a classroom’s imagination. One day I’m going to make that magnificent beaver-infested basin! And bonus points for fitting into the diverse book category with an adorable caramel-coloured main character.
