This book features some of Spike's classic children's work, including Silly Verse For Kids (1959), The Bald Twit Lion (1968), A Book of Milliganimals (1968), Unspun Socks From A Chicken's Laundry (1981), Sir Nobonk and the terrible, awful, dreadful, naughty, nasty Dragaon (1982) and Startling Verse For All The Family (1987).

The poems have lots of vocal exclamation (onomatopoeia) and are also based upon statements and opinions which children have ventured. Full of vivid descriptions and imagination.
