Fox in Socks is the most marvellous tongue-twisting book.  If you think your reading is up to the test, try reading this one out loud!

Test yourself all the way from ‘Chicks with bricks come, chicks with blocks come, chicks with bricks and blocks and clocks come’, through to my favourite, ‘When the tweetle beetle battle is a battle in puddle, and the beetle battle puddle is a puddle in a bottle, we call this….’

Sadly, the later editions don’t carry the final page found in my copy, which simply reads, “Now, is your tongue numb?”
