Description

In Oi Frog!, Cat decided that Dog would sit on Frog. In Oi Dog!, Frog was not best pleased with this and changed the rules so that dogs now had to sit on logs and cats, much to Cat's chagrin, had to sit on gnats. In Oi Cat!, Cat's bottom is being constantly bitten by the gnats and together the three animals must come up with some new rhyming rules for who sits where. Will anyone end up being sat on?

Jim Field's hugely expressive illustrations and Kes Gray's hilarious pairing of animal and seat will have both you and the kids roaring with laughter and everyone guessing what might come next. Be prepared to have it spill out into your everyday life as you may find yourself having to follow these rules... hmm, now what can you sit on that rhymes with mum?

Fun times for 3+

Armadillos sit on pillows and
Chicks sit on bricks.
