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.

Foxes sit in boxes.
Bears stand on chairs
Flamingos talk in lingos
Prawns trim their lawns
Kangaroos hide in their loos.
Aardvarks visit busy parks.

Bats in hats and kittens wearing mittens. Giraffe wears a scarf and goat wears a coat. The dove fell in love with the ape in a cape, but the frog wears his smile like a crocodile. Off he hopped to the nearest shop, to buy a Christmas tree from Mr Bumblebee. He put it in the pond and sang a little song, Then he crawled under a leaf to have a little sleep. Night Night everyone . Merry Christmas

The doves sit above
the sheep who are asleep,
the donkey sits with camels
while the star shines out afar.
