Ducks growing out of bananas? A mouse catching a cat? What’s wrong with this audiobook from the creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar?
Yes, there’s something strange, something funny and even downright preposterous in every bit of this audiobook. But it’s not a mistake – it’s nonsense! And it’s also surrealism. Nonsense lies at the heart of many beloved nursery rhymes. Children readily accept odd statements like “the cow jumped over the moon” and “the dish ran away with the spoon.” This fanciful bending of reality is also basic to surrealism.

In this audiobook, nonsense and surrealism combine to spark creativity and imagination. What’s true? What’s impossible? What’s absolutely absurd? From Eric Carle, creator of the classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, comes an audiobook to make children laugh and think, preparing them for a lifetime of loving both words and art.

Praise for The Nonsense Show

* 'Carle creates fun and laughter in this homage to the surrealist artist René Magritte. [P]erfect for storytimes and silly times all round. Carle hits it out of the nonsense park!'–Booklist, starred review
