Don't Take Your Elephant to School : All Kinds of Alphabet Poems
In this collection - Steve's fifth children's poetry book - he returns to much of the word play and wit of the best-selling The Day I Fell Down the Toilet. Using the alphabet as a framework he has written three poems for each letter (including X and Z!). This highly entertaining book will delight all Turner fans and teachers will appreciate the varied poetry forms (shape, limerick, nonsense, free, rhyming etc). The fun, witty poems - often written from a thought-provoking point of view - cover such diverse subjects as aardvarks, cars, sausages, love and yo-yos, so there's sure to be something to interest both boys and girls.
