Toe-nails by Michael Rosen

More and more people in Britain today

are using



Smart and smooth

They grow

on all five toes of each foot.


We spoke to Jack Davis of Hackney:

‘Yes, I like toe-nails.

I’ve got ten of them.

Big ones for the big toes

and little ones for the little toes.

They’re great.’


Be like Jack.

Be smart.

Grow toe-nails.
