'And if Ferdinand decides to make a chocolate fudge banana cake What do we do? For goodness sake! We ALL JOIN IN!'

The collection includes 'All Join In', 'The Hooter Song', 'Nice Weather for Ducks' and 'Sorting Out the Kitchen Pans'. Who coud possibly resist?

I knew it was a classic the instant I saw it . . . The simple verse is brilliant for reading aloud and is perfectly complemented by Blake's spiky, anarchic pictures. An absolute must for the under-fives - Parents Magazine
The illustrations dance through the pages with the speed and riotous rhythm of the poems. Children really begin to get a sense of what language can do when they experience this book - Child Education
Blake's exuberant illustrations positively leap off the page and perfectly match his infectious rhymes. This will have everyone joining in - The Good Book Guide
Quentin Blake has been drawing ever since he can remember and has always made his living as an illustrator. He has also taught, and for eight years was Head of the Illustration department at the Royal College of Art. Quentin Blake was made an OBE in 1988 and, in the words of the Guardian, was 'already a national institution' when he was appointed the first Children's Laureate in 1999.
