Packed with silliness, activities and prompts for creative indoor and outdoor play for all ages - with specially illustrated pages for everything from doodling to word play and after-dinner games.

Reviews

Play, make-believe, nonsense talk, it all comes naturally to us when we're young. As one of our most beloved children's authors, poets and storytellers, it's a knack Rosen has never grown out of ... Yet now, more than ever, Rosen argues that there's an important role for play in all our lives. -- Boudicca Fox-Leonard * Sunday Telegraph * The former children's laureate advocates play for everyone, young or old. The book has a friendly, lively tone as it explores role play, ad-libbing, dressing up, toys, art, stories and wordplay. * i Newspaper *
