Read full description of the books:
In this collection of nine short stories written in poetic verse, Griffiths uses repetitive text to create simplistic, but quite humorous tales. Some of the titles are "The Cat, The Mat, The Rat, and the Baseball Bat, Ed and Ted and Ted's Dog Fred, and Frog on a Log in a Bog." Similar to Dr. Seuess' use of simplistic rhyming stories, Griffiths work is written in a cyclical manner (almost like a tongue twister), needing to be read more than once to grasp his meaning. For example from "Ed and Ted and Ted's Dog Fred," the story opens with "There was a man whose name was Ed. He lived in a shed with his friend Ted. Ted had a dog whose name was Fred. Ed liked Ted and Ted liked Ed and Fred liked Ted but he didn't like Ed..." Although the words he has chosen are "easy" to read (cat, mat, log, frog, etc.), the meaning behind each story may require higher level thinking to grasp. Terry Denton's black and white cartoon-like illustrations support the text VERY well, adding to the playful manner of the text.
