The Cockerel:
A noisy little cockerel
Would sing at break of day:
Dogs would bark, kids would cry
From bloody miles away.
Folk signed a petition
To say it wasn’t proper;
The cockerel said “Hey get a life!
I’m Bantam of the Opera”.
A collection of “Nice and Naughty” rhymes each illustrated with Garrick Tremain’s colourful characters.

“A fascinating journey through the nether regions” - Eric Newby
“Mr Tremain is very funny, but awfully untidy” - Mrs Tremain

About the Author:
For 20 of the past 25 years Garrick Tremain has been New Zealand's most widely published editorial cartoonist. He has enjoyed an avid daily readership in many regions of the country, most fervently in Otago, Canterbury and Nelson. This as an adjunct to his work as a successful landscape painter.
In recent years he has written and illustrated two books of comic verse. In 2005 he set out to write a book of nursery rhymes for children but could not resist putting a risque slant on most verses. Hence he titled it "NURSERY RHYMES MOTHER NEVER READ YOU". It quickly achieved Gold and Platinum status. Now in it's 6th edition it has sold over 15,000 copies.

Gemma Correll’s whimsical illustrations capture all Fido’s moods from perky scamp to loyal, obedient protector. Although this book does present a vast array of canine shenanigans purely for our amusement, be forewarned—you’ll also get some startling insights into what your dog is really thinking about you (and, it may not always be complimentary—not that you will really mind). You see, dogs have insinuated themselves into our lives as no other creatures could. What’s more, they know they’ll always have a place in our hearts. Why else do we lavish them with yummy treats and belly scratches? There’s something about a wagging tail and a soulful stare that’s just too hard to resist.

An accessible and appealing format that’s an ideal gift for any occasion

A must-have for all seeking a deeper understanding of the canine psyche—or even just a good laugh
