About the Book

A delightful dose of "Canada's Father Goose" for pint-sized poetry fans! Based on the title poem of Dennis Lee's classic collection, Garbage Delight is a feast for the senses, a stew of sly humour and memorable rhymes. This sturdy, standalone board book edition features winsome artwork by Sandy Nichols, who previously paired with Dennis Lee to create the bestseller Alligator Pie, and is a staple item for every toddler's bookshelf.

"You can almost hear the skipping ropes slapping on the sidewalk." —Margaret Laurence
