Toes in my Nose is the book that helped launch Sheree Fitch’s career as Canada’s premier nonsense poet. Hers are some of the best-loved poems and characters in children’s literature. In this twenty-fifth-anniversary edition, award-winning illustrator Sydney Smith’s new illustrations hilariously portray a neighborhood of kids flying to the moon, playing the banjo with orangutans and bathing with submarines. Toes in my Nose will introduce a whole new generation to Sheree Fitch’s magnificent feats of imagination.
