Books That Make You Romp with Hysterical Rhymes—and Introduce You to a Great Children’s Book Author

Rhyming can help immensely in the learning process, especially for children, who may also love a good scary story. And they certainly would have fun with the offerings of Whimsical World, an innovative children's brand seeking to entertain and educate children of all ages, all while planting seeds of self-esteem and high achievement.

Not only is he the author of The BookFest Award-Winner Hysterical Rhymes, Derek Taylor Kent is also known for his four-book middle-grade series Scary School, published by HarperCollins.

El Perro con Sombrero, his bilingual children’s book, was published by Holt-Macmillan. Other popular picture books include Dinosaur Derby, The Grossest Picture Book Ever, and his latest, Ka-Boom!

He and his wife, children's author Sheri Fink, are the founders of Whimsical World, and spread their joy of literacy and learning through live events, speaking appearances, school visits and pop-up shops all over the world.
