This joyous explosion of rhyme, rhythm and colour will engage little ones as a read-aloud. The Man from the land of Fandango brings with him a riot of crazy animals and excitement with brief but delightful text by Mahy that sounds fantastic when read to small children.
Dunbar’s exuberant illustrations complement the poetry beautifully, completing a package that is both fun and interesting to explore.
