EXCERPT: Let’s have a little talk about tweetle beetles….

What do you know about tweetle beetles? Well…

When tweetle beetles fight,
it’s called a tweetle beetle battle.

And when they battle in a puddle,
it’s a tweetle beetle puddle battle.

AND when tweetle beetles battle with paddles in a puddle,
they call it a tweetle beetle puddle paddle battle.

AND…

When beetles battle beetles in a puddle paddle battle
and the beetle battle puddle is a puddle in a bottle…
…they call this a tweetle beetle bottle puddle paddle battle muddle.

AND…

When beetles fight these battles in a bottle with their paddles
and the bottle’s on a poodle and the poodle’s eating noodles…
…they call this a muddle puddle tweetle poodle beetle noodle
bottle paddle battle.

AND…

ABOUT THIS BOOK: In this hilarious book, the irrepressible Fox in Socks teaches a baffled Mr. Knox some of the slickest, quickest tongue-twisters in town.

MY THOUGHTS: Fox in Socks is currently my grandson’s favourite book. It really is the only book he currently wants to read, or to be read to him. It has even ousted his Paw Patrol book in the favourites stakes!

And he is word perfect on it….when my tongue got twisted the other day, he said ‘Nana, that’s not right. Read it again!’

Dr Seuss brings out the child in all of us. I love reading, and rereading, his books. I love the illustrations. I love the sillyness.

5 stupendous stars ❤😂🤣🤪💖

I love good quality chocolate. I love the ocean and love to be in, on or beside it. I read any and every where. I am a proud mum and Nana. I like wine, gin, Southern Comfort, a cold Heineken on a hot day. I am very versatile like that. I cross stitch, do jigsaws, garden, and work on a farm. I am an occasional scribbled. I have far too many books I want to read to ever find the time to die.

  1. I love Dr. Seuss. I will have to check my shelf, I am pretty sure I have this one. I love that he corrects you Sandy. When my daughter was young, her favourite was Green Eggs and Ham. It is the best to read with our grandchildren. So Blessed.
