Don't Put Mustard in the Custard

(1985)
A Picture Book by

 
 
Children everywhere love the humorous writings of Michael Rosen. In Don't Put Mustard in the Custard, the poems are accompanied by wonderful illustrations by the well-known Quentin Blake. The poems are simple, easy to read and appeal to children of different ages and experiences. They are refreshingly original and do not depend on rhyming couplets. Michael Rosen specifically writes for children's enjoyment, hoping to create lots of giggles.

Particularly appealing is the poem "Don't":
Don't pull facesDon't tease the catDon't pick your earsDon't be rude at school...Don't put ants in your pantsDon't put mustard in the custard.
Suitable for children of 4 years and above, if read by an adult (7+ if reading it themselves). This is particularly good for getting the interest of reluctant readers and offering an alternative to the usual kind of book. --Susan Naylor
