"You can almost hear the skipping rope slapping the sidewalk," wrote Margaret Laurence of Dennis Lee's timeless poetry collection Alligator Pie. One of the first illustrated books published about Canadian children and featuring Canadian place names, Alligator Pie established Dennis Lee's reputation as "Canada's Father Goose" and has sold more than half a million copies since its publication in 1974. This classic edition, featuring Frank Newfeld's instantly recognizable original illustrations and book design, includes childhood favourites such as "Willoughby Wallaby Woo," "Wiggle to the Laundromat" and "Skyscraper."

It's probably the best introduction to poetry there is. Nothing quite like a nice bit of nonsense Canadiana.
