This six-book collection is full of silly laughs, from farting fish to bagel snatching dogs. These books are filled with funny poems and stories that children love reading again and again. It’s perfect for children aged 5-7 who enjoy laughing and giggling with comical, loveable characters - and parents will enjoy them too! 

Known for his comedic approach to kids books, Rosen makes each title as funny as the last. Rosen’s work is excellent for kids looking to develop reading skills in a fun way, and his collections appeal to reluctant readers. Ross is known as a wild and detailed illustrator, so there’s plenty to keep children entertained in this set. Perfect for young readers aged between 7-9, these kids’ fiction books are a pleasure to read from start to finish. Each one has its own unique story to tell that has a brilliant way of capturing young minds, so be prepared for plenty of laughing out loud.

What’s more, this gentle yet fun approach to the next stage in your child’s reading can support young children who are perhaps reluctant to read. Parents might also find this popular collection is a valuable introduction to chapter books as their literacy journey progresses. This six-book set is perfect for parent-child reading time at home, approaching one chapter at a time and is an excellent, not mention hilarious, addition to your child’s library. 

This kids’ fiction collection of 6 funny stories is a fantastic set to keep young minds engaged when it comes to reading so it’s no surprise that Michael Rosen’s Funny Stories set happens to be one of our best selling collections.

About the authors

Michael Rosen grew up with parents who loved to sing songs and come up with fun poems. This creative environment inspired Rosen to become a writer. Rosen initially worked as a scriptwriter at the BBC. He wrote scripts for children’s television, including Sam on Boff’s Island, which helped kids develop essential reading skills.

His first children’s book was a collection of poems called Mind Your Own Business, published in 1974. It was illustrated by the renowned Quentin Blake, who also worked with the legendary author Roald Dahl. Rosen and Blake collaborated on fourteen books together, four of which were reissued together as Bananas In My Ears.

Rosen was one of the first authors or poets to visit schools to teach the art of writing and reading books. He became the sixth Children’s Laureate in 2007 and was in post until 2009. Over his career, he has received many honorary degrees and awards, including the J.M. Barrie Lifetime Achievement Award.

Tony Ross is best known as the beloved illustrator of The Little Princess and Horrid Henry series. However, he’s illustrated over 2000 books in a career of over 40 years. He has worked with David Walliams, Paula Danzinger, and Lynne Read Banks, among many more. His books have been adapted for TV multiple times, usually keeping his inimitable artistic style.

Description :

Burping Bertha
“A brilliant tale told with all the ingenuity of Michael Rosen and accompanied by the wonderful illustrations of Tony Ross.”

On an ordinary morning, in an ordinary flat, an up-till-now perfectly ordinary Bertha does an extraordinary burp. A burp so extraordinary, it knocks things over. A burp so big that very soon it’s causing havoc in the school canteen, the playground, not to mention her grandad’s apple trees... Such a burptastic secret cannot stay quiet for long. And soon enough, it lands Bertha her very own celebrity stardom… but is it all just a lot of hot air?

Choosing Crumble
When Terri-Lee goes to the pet shop, she thinks she’ll be choosing a dog – she doesn’t expect the dog to be choosing her! But Crumble is no ordinary pet, and he’s got a few questions to ask:

How many walks will you take me on? Do you like to dance? Will you tickle me? I like that a lot. Will Terri-Lee’s dance moves and answers be enough to convince Crumble that she could be his owner?

Don’t Forget Tiggs!
Mr and Mrs Hurry are always rushing about. They never stop! But that means they forget some rather important things – like eating... and shopping... and taking their son Harry to school! Thankfully, Tiggs the cat is around to remind them. But will anyone remember to give Tiggs his dinner?

Barking for Bagels
Shnipp the dog loves to play fetch with Julie and Lara in the park, but she doesn’t love their annoying laughs. So one day, she decides to run off. It’s not long before Shnipp finds a new life with Bessie the Bagel Lady, eating delicious bagels every day. But when she decides to finally head home, she discovers things aren’t exactly the same as when she left…

Bilal’s Brilliant Bee
Bilal is terrified of The Test. He can’t answer any of the questions! But then Bumble the bee comes along, and he can answer any question you ask, even the really tricky ones. Then Bilal’s granny suggests they go on the wildly popular TV quiz show, What’s What? Win the Lot! But what will happen if Bilal and Bumble do win the lot...? A wonderfully bonkers and laugh-out-loud funny story from dream team Rosen and Ross.

Fluff the Farting Fish
Elvie is desperate for a puppy that she can train up to do amazing tricks. But it’s not a puppy Mum returns from the pet shop with, it’s a fish. But Elvie doesn’t give up. Determined to fulfil her dream of having a performing pet, she trains up Fluff the fish. Fluff can’t sit, she won’t bark on command, but she does have a very special fishy talent all of her own...
