There once was a nose with exceptional gift. He could tell you the color of things that he whiffed.
He’d stick up his nostrils high in the air, and call off the colors of your shoes and your hair…
Then—the Nose who knows everything got a surprise! In Nelly Shmagessen’s delicatassen the sandwiches reach a mile high. Best friends Ickey and Gooey really stick together. Stan the Man makes houses out of gravy. A mutt in a rut gets help from a friend. And, a curious cat learns when to keep his mouth shut A curious cat learns to keep his mouth shut. And, the Nose who knows everything gets a surprise.

These were some very short, very clever poems: easy to read, understand and learn from. With a unique rhythmic flow to each little poem, they fly off the tongue and easy for early readers.

About the Author:
Neal Fox is an award-winning composer and filmmaker with an extensive history in the music business. Signed as an artist to Polydor, RCA and Columbia Records, he had two charted singles and a Top Ten Dance Club Hit. Billboard called him, “a rueful Randy Newman eccentric…equally at home in blues, rock, pop and jazz motifs,” and Music Connection said he has “the ability to conjure virtually any style of recording in the pop music realm.”
A former partner in Patterson, Walz & Fox Music Productions, Fox wrote and produced music for hundreds of commercials. He has also written for film, i.e., the Killer Tomato movies, and TV (from CBS to VH-1), receiving Clio, Addy and Telly awards for his work.
In the early 90s, he co-created a series of multi-cultural children’s books with his wife, Naomi. She wrote the stories; he illustrated the books and composed the scores, and actor Robert Guillaume did the narration. Marketed under the Confetti Company name, the books inspired HBO’s Happy Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child.
