In this delightful nonsense poem, Ashley Fayth introduces readers to a range of “wild and wondrous” beasts—like the sniger, the floose, the squffin, and the butterflabbit. With its playful rhymes and rollicking rhythm, this book is a perfect read-aloud. Yet even in its silliest moments, The Sniger and the Floose is a gentle reminder to respect and preserve the beauty of the natural world around us, and a joyous celebration of imagination.
What folks are saying
A pandemonium of portmanteaus, a raucous riot of words, a loveable crew of creatures on an unforgettable vivacious voyage. A nonsensical rollicking read-aloud for all ages. Thanks for the lip-slippery, joy-filled gibberish—The Sniger and the Floose is a new favourite of mine! ~ Sheree Fitch, author of Summer Feet, Mabel Murple, Sleeping Dragons All Around, and more.
