Description

Here is a modern take on cautionary verse in the hugely successful tradition of Hilaire Belloc and others. Children getting into and out of trouble is the theme of this collection - which offers much scope for hilarious pranks and wonderfully sticky endings. With poems from poets as diverse as Hilaire Belloc, Shel Silverstein, Dick King-Smith, Heinrich Hoffmann, John Agard, and of course Roger McGough himself, this will appeal to all fans of the comic, the unfortunate, and the darkly humorous!show more
