Vandag is ek 'n windlawaai (Afrikaans, Hardcover): Philip de Vos Vandag is ek 'n windlawaai (Afrikaans, Hardcover)
Philip de Vos; Illustrated by Piet Grobler
R143 Discovery Miles 1 430 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

In 1838 het die komponis Robert Schumann ín klavierwerk van 13 nommers genaamd Kinderszenen (Kindertonele) geskryf, waarvoor hy later aparte titels gegee het nadat sy vrou, Clara, vir hom gese het dat hy self soms soos ín kind is. Hierdie musiekstukke is dan ook oor die gebeurlikhede en daaglikse ervaringe van ín kind en ook sy verhouding met sy ouers. Philip de Vos is deur beide Robert Schumann se musiek en die titels geinspireer om versies van sy eie te maak.

I'm Just No Good At Rhyming - And Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-Ups (Paperback): Chris Harris I'm Just No Good At Rhyming - And Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-Ups (Paperback)
Chris Harris; Illustrated by Lane Smith 1
R155 R133 Discovery Miles 1 330 Save R22 (14%) In stock

"Highly recommended. I think it will make children wriggle with delight" - Stephen Fry If I ever find myself holding a gecko . . . I'll lecko. Forget what you think you know about poetry - this is something totally different. Chris Harris' I'm Just No Good At Rhyming combines wit, wordplay and nonsense with visual and verbal tricks to make you look at the world in a new and wonderfully upside-down way, reminiscent of Spike Milligan. I'm just no good at rhyming. It makes me feel so bad. I'm just no good at rhyming, And that's why I'm so blue. This entirely unique collection of wildly witty words offers a surprise around every corner, from the ongoing rivalry between the author and illustrator (mean poem and cruel portrait included), to the mysteriously misnumbered pages that can only be deciphered by a certain code-cracking verse, to a poem that is 100% genuinely infinite. Meet a balding werewolf, competitive boulders, a birthday piranha, and find out if grown-ups really are better! Why are grown-ups better than kids? 'Cause we got what it takes - We never, ever, ever, ever, ever, make mistaeks! Adding to the fun: Lane Smith, winner of the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal for There Is a Tribe of Kids, has spectacularly illustrated this extraordinary collection with nearly one hundred pieces of appropriately absurd art. It's a mischievous match made in heaven and the perfect gift for creative kids or immature grown-ups.

'The Poetry Bug Strikes Again' is the much awaited follow up to the 'The Poetry Bug'. The poems enable children to dream the world through different eyes. It gives a voice to how they feel about themselves, their loved ones and the exciting, confusing and scary world in which they find themselves. 'The Poetry Bug Strikes Again' is, above all, playful. It recognises that we are all explorers and that word play, self expression and humour can be means by which this exploration can take place. This book recognises humanity's eternal quest to understand ourselves, others and our world. In a world of conformity it enables us to identify and celebrate diversity, in bite size, age appropriate chunks.
