Review quote

A wonderful children's poetry book, full of amusing, thought-provoking verse. -- Liz Mills TES Curriculum Highly observant, often poignant, sometimes naughty and always fresh and funny. -- Nick Park - creator of Wallace and Gromit Full of quirky humour and strong rhymes that kids adore. -- Brian Patten Children and quite a few adults will enjoy the poems in this collection. Pollution, religion, growing up and families are just some of the topics the author uses for this amusing anthology. I rate this collection as good as those by Roger McGough and Brian Patten. -- Tom Judge Hull Daily Mail One of the most original and child-friendly voices... The Sunday Telegraphshow more
