Another Custard Pie by Roger McGough & Graham Percy
Another Custard Pie by Roger Mc Gough and published in 1993, is written in rhyming couplets and tells the story about a boy who dreams of running away to join the circus and awakes to find that the circus chaos has come to his house instead. The living room houses the big top, a baby elephant is playing the piano and his little sister is checking out the inside of a tiger's mouth.
There is a lion in the wardrobe
And it's trying on my clothes.
There is a seal in the bath
With a potty on it's nose.
About ever kind of circus act is given some kind of reference or recognition, including a bear on a pogo stick and a kangaroo and a camel playing "Catch-the -Ball."
In the end the boy has had enough and changed his mind completely.
