Riddle Me This


Cecil needs your help!


My first is in flea but not in fly

My second is in town but not in tonne – why?

Because my third is in warning but not in waning

Said the fourth ant who’s not into complaining

Instead, he likes the fifth dish but has no dosh

So he saw the sixth horse, which was far from posh

The ant gathered his thoughts which were all jumbled together

“am I going to be able to make sense of all these letters?”


Can you help poor Cecil out?








"I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories. They came built-in to my brain, almost like an Ikea instruction manual. The focus these days is to figure out how to now turn them into books" Tanya Butler, June 2018
