Creepy Crawley Calypso
Tony Langham, illustrated by Debbie Harter, read by Richard Love
Jump and jive with this funky band of mini-beasts, as they play their cool calypso beats! Introducing guitar-strumming ladybugs, trombone-blowing dragonflies and piano-tinkling centipedes, the catchy CD which accompanies the book will have everyone singing along enthusiastically. The counting theme throughout helps young learners with their numbers up to ten, and there are lots of creepy-crawly facts at the back of the book, in addition to information about the Caribbean and calypso bands.
Tony Langham wrote his first poem aged seven. After thirty years doing various jobs, Tony decided to become a full-time writer and now writes stories, plays and poems for children of all ages and travels around the UK giving performances in schools. He is married with children and lives in Yorkshire. Debbie Harter has illustrated over 20 books for Barefoot, including the beloved Bear series and several singalongs. As a child, Debbie would lose herself in books (as long as they had pictures) and hopes to continue doing so until she is very old.
