We're offering 15 free Waitrose Yule logs and a signed copy of Oi Frog! to gransnetters who come up with the best festive or animal rhyme in one sentence, in the style of the book (eg ‘pheasants sit on presents’ etc.)

From the award-winning Kes Gray and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, comes an hilarious rhyming tale about a frog who discovers that all animals have their special places to sit!

Cats sit on mats, hares sit on chairs, mules sit on stools and gofers sit on sofas, but Frog does not want to sit on a log! Jam-packed with animals and silliness, this original rhyming story will have young children in fits of laughter

'An absolute treat.' - Daily Mail

'Hilarious illustrations and rhymes which are easy to recite and join in. Everyone will love it.' - The Guardian

Watch the trailer here:

Oi Frog is published by Hachette Children's Group and can be purchased on Amazon.

Post your festive or animal rhymes (in one sentence) below by Friday 11 December to be entered into the competition.

A mantis sits on a clematis, maintaining a distance, and having resistance to having sought to put his thoughts into prayer. But he ought to. Say and pray that is. On the clematis.
