"How many ways can you use this parade? To start with you can read it and you can hang it up on the wall or lay it out on the floor and you can paste it up or cut it out or draw your own on the back with your own colours and flags and if that isn't enough you can make your own parade and march around, imitate the people and make the noises or the music or both or just cheer" (publisher's blurb).
