Little Nonsense


Children of all ages love silly rhymes, nonsense words and ridiculous riddles.   Now children from all over Britain are being invited to contribute to a new iPhone and iPad App, and have their voices used on 'Little Nonsense' due be launched by Colin West, author and illustrator of over 60 children's books.

Children can submit their recording of one of Colin's laugh-out-loud verse, and win the chance of having their voice being used on the App, due to be launched in September 2012. Full details are on www.littlenonsense.co.uk and a Preview version of the App is now available in the Appstore.

To make a recording, simply follow the guide on Little Nonsense and be in with a chance of having your voice used on this exciting App!

The Little Nonsense App will provide pure interaction for all the family. A major feature of the App will be the games and puzzles that accompany each poem. Everyone will be able to enjoy Colin's sparkling humour and comical capers on a totally new platform, including witnessing never-before seen illustrations and specifically composed music for the App. 

’Little Nonsense will take inspiration from Colin's book, The Big Book of Nonsense. This has received critical acclaim from the press including The Times Educational Supplement claiming that the book "should be in every teacher's personal library.” 

The new App sees characters, such as Aunty Agnes and Clumsy Clarissa come to life, and become part of the game and interaction. Meet The Nutpickers who nicked the nuts alongside many more humorous characters as Colin's rhythmical verse takes you through fantasy scenarios, provides tantalising tongue-twisters and wacky, wonderful words. 

To take part in the App, Colin is asking children to record their own reading of one his Little Nonsense poems. Colin will then select 100 children whose particular words or phrases stand out to be used on the App. Winners will have their voice featured on the App when it launches later this year and will all receive a copy of the book The Big Book of Nonsense. 

Generations have previously enjoyed Nonsense poems from Spike Milligan, Lewis Carrol, Quentin Blake and Edward Lear. Now Colin West brings a new opportunity for children who can delight in the world of Nonsense verse and incandescent illustrations in this totally interactive medium. 

A Facebook page www.facebook.com/littlenonsenseuk has been created for the app and a youtube channel www.youtube.com/LittleNonsensePoems
