I stuck my toes
In my nose
And I couldn't get them out…

Silly, funny, and outrageous, Toes in My Nose is the book that launched Sheree Fitch's career as Canada's premiere nonsense poet. From Popcorn Pete and Mabel Murple to Zelba Zinnamon, these are some of the best-loved poems and characters in Canadian children's literature.

In this twenty-fifth anniversary edition, award-winning illustrator Sydney Smith's new illustrations hilariously portray a neighbourhood of kids flying to the moon, playing banjo with orangutans, and bathing with submarines. Toes in My Nose will introduce a whole new generation to Sheree Fitch's magnificent feat of imagination.
