Never Shake a Rattlesnake

Don’t tuck piranhas inside your best pyjamas! Don’t keep a whale in a lake. Don’t teach the bunny rabbits your own bad habits. And – whatever you do – please don’t shake a rattlesnake! We all know about saying please and thank you, and not talking with your mouth full. But, as one little boy discovers, when you’re dealing with grumpy grizzly bears and hairy chimpanzees, simple manners can get complicated! Bouncy rhymes collide with zany illustrations in this comical look at good behaviour, illustrated by Nick Sharratt. It’s crammed with frolicking animals getting into sticky situations: bears, kangaroos, bunny rabbits, giraffes and even cheeky little boys!
