His first degree in English Literature and Language was from Wadham College, Oxford and he went on to study for an MA at the University of Reading and a PhD at the former University of North London, now London Metropolitan. Typical of Michael Rosen, this book is funny, sly and gloriously accompanied by Tony Ross' bold illustrations.

The only downside of the Michael Rosen fever is Eddie's new found tendency to squash his peas on his knees at the dinner table and his attempts to stick his toe up my nose (see here).

Now I feel a bit ambivalent about the tendency of every new picture book these days to be accompanied by a CD. Michael Rosen breaks down barriers with his poems for children, creating an infectious informality and irreverence that brilliantly captures the funny moments of everyday life. Following the success of their first Book of Nonsense, Michael Rosen and Clare Mackie have joined forces once again to create this spectacular collection of humorous poems. A tireless promoter of children's literature – and a long-time collaborator with roald Dahl – Quentin Blake was awarded the OBE in 1988 and in 2005 he was awarded a CBE for services to Children's Literature. The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged.

Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 2007-2009, has also written a letter specially for the Letterbox Club to accompany this book. He is also the winner of the Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration and in 1990 was voted 'The Illustrator's Illustrator' by Observer Magazine.You Can't Catch Me and You Can't Put Mustard in the Custard were first published twenty-five years ago and were groundbreaking in that they were full-colour illustrated new poems for children. We then spent a very happy half hour watching his fab performances on YouTube with Eddie's eyes shining and quivery with happiness. During his time in the role, he celebrated children's books and children's book illustration with a range of projects and exhibitions, and conceived the idea for the House of Illustration, the world's first centre dedicated to the art of illustration in all its forms. Quentin was the inaugural Children's Laureate (1999-2001), an experience he recorded in his book Laureate's Progress.

Poems and illustrations from’ You Can’t Catch Me’ and ‘Don’t Put Mustard in the Custard’ with new illustrations and a new introduction. A celebratory issue of two poetry collaborations, "You Can't Catch Me" and "You Can't Put Mustard in the Custard". He was the Children’s Laureate from 2007-2009 and has published over 200 books for children and adults, including the recent bestseller Many Different Kinds of Love and On The Move.He has won many major prizes for illustration, including the Kate Greenaway Medal (1980) and the Red House Children's Book Award (1981) for Mister Magnolia.

He is currently Professor of Children’s Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London where he co-devised and teaches critical approaches to reading on an MA in Children’s Literature, having done the same at Birkbeck, University of London.When the news was broken of his visit I had a shame-faced rummage through our shelves and realised the only book of his we had was the standard issue (but obviously wonderful) 'We're going on a Bear Hunt'. This was admitted to the honoured Bed Book Stack the very same night and he's been reading it constantly since. It helps that it's illustrated by Quentin Blake of whom he wholeheartedly approves but he's always loved the 'mouthfeel' of well put together words and rhymes and these chew down nicely for him.
