This is the 4th (or 5th if you count Oi Goat) Oi instalment by the awesome author & illustrator duo, Kes Gray & Jim Field.

We have been looking forward to reading this, since Kes Gray told us about it in March when he visited my daughter’s school!  At last, the day has come!! Lo even bought it with his own money!!!!

It has fabulously funny rhyme and equally fabulously funny illustrations!  Duck-billed platypus wants to know what she should sit on...we soon find out, but we also discover where the other un-rhymable animals should sit too!! But what about Kangaroo????  Read it!  Find out!  You will not be disappointed!

This is so clever. I wondered how could we have another ‘Oi...’ book. This will not disappoint.  More rhyming fun and lovely illustrations. My children chuckled their way through and then we had to go back and start all over again.  High praise indeed!

A super funny new story in this hilarious series. We were laughing out loud at the silly frog who is desperately trying to find what rhymes with duck billed platypus. All the other animals with unusual names then chip in asking for rhymes for them too. Lots of fun.

Another great book in the oi series, with lots of animals and really fun illustrations. This time the duck billed platypus wants to know what they sit on, but nothing rhymes. So all the other non rhyming animals ask too. Frog has an idea to ask there name, so he can rhyme them. A really fun story that my little boy loved.

What's not to love about the latest outing in the Oi series.  Lucas was giggling like a loony at dog's attempts to find things that would rhyme with Duck Billed Platypus.  
Full of humour and awesome illustrations - it's been wonderful to say Oi to some of our favourite characters again!

Every "Oi..." book just gets better and better, and this is no exception.

I wondered where the rhyme and story could possibly go after each book is released, but it all flows so naturally.

My kids love the rhyme and rhythm of this books, and the illustrations make for hilarious viewing.

There isn't anything we don't like about this book!

Another great book in the series.  I highly recommend any parent or EYFS teacher owns the entire series!

Although this one wasn't my favourite, it rhymes what the animal sits on with their first name rather than their animal name.  For example....claire, niamh, paul etc.  which didn't have the same educational element as the other one, teaching us animal names too!  

But the illustrations are wonderful, and the ending is funny!
