The B on Your Thumb
is your number-one chum –
a magical spell for excelling.
The rhymes are a riot,
so come on and try it –
you’ll soon be a wizard at spelling.

I remember the misery I had as a child trying to pronounce and spell words. I wish this book had been around back then, it would have saved me and the teachers a lot of grief. The illustrations are fun, every page is as colourful as a jar of sweets and every rhyme is accessible.

Brian Patten, award-winning poet and author

A riotous introduction to the quirky world of the English language.
