Sister Madge's Book of Nuns free pdf ' babies look at you and shriek? Do talking parrots give you cheek? And when you kneel to say your prayers, Do all the mice jump up on chairs?

Back by popular demand after 25 years - the full-colour hardback edition of one of Australia's most hilarious children's books with two extra poems and a totally new design. Wicked, warped and fiendishly funny, this collection of poems by Australia's best writer of comic verse and his cheeky offsider, Craig Smith, introduces us to Sister Madge Mappin and the other eccentric residents of Our Lady of Immense Proportions. An exploding nun, a giant baby, hungry cannibals, angry angels, vicious vegetables and dreadful dentures - they're all here and more!
