"Bubblegum, delicious,
Bubblegum delight,
Bubblegum de-lovely in the
Middle of the night..."

Three generations of Canadians have shouted, chanted, and whispered the irresistible lines of Dennis Lee. Boisterously original--and true to the spirit of childhood--Lee returns in Bubblegum Delicious to the joyous roots of his classic children's poetry.

Using the rhythm of bouncing balls and schoolyard songs, Lee has created a collection with all the wonder and wistfulness of early years--from sublime goofiness to winsome poignancy

Illustrator David McPhail has created a complementary world, peopled with a young boy his beloved dog, and a wacky collection of psychedelic bugs. In turn, these bugs deliver their own brand of verse--a parade of bratty, hilarious quatrains that act as a delightful counterpoint to the whimsy and gentleness of the main poems.

Bubblegum Delicious is destined to become a classic of Canadian children's literature.
