An Imaginary Menagerie


Add your own review!

Overview

From the anaconda in a Honda (don't ask him for a ride, you might end up inside), to the zonk (good for nothing and very rude), from the useful catapillow and the reliable teapet to he newt who plays the flute, and the wordfish - who's a swordfish in a state of undress, this is an A-Z of animal poems with a difference! Choose your own favourite from Roger McGough's witty and wicked menagerie of rare breeds real and imaginary.

Classic Roger McGough... Kids love these poems. The Guardian


Classic Roger McGough... Kids love these poems. The Guardian The poems are very accessible for children to dip into or read as a collection. They are all short in length and the use of rhyme in the poems adds additional excitement. Learn the truth about the Loch Ness Monter; paso doble with the flamingo; find out where you can see a scallop gallop and learn all about the durinanimal in this book. The blurb challengs you to chose your favourite from this witty and wicked menagerie. I don't think I can! A welcome republication for McGough's classic collection of real and imaginary animal poems, which first delighted readers of all ages more than twenty years ago. Adults who enjoyed these poems as children now have an excuse to revisit and share them with a further generation. McGough revels in the sound of words, puns and word-play generally, and in the incongruity of ideas and behaviour. The twenty-six short animal word portraits layer the surreal, the bizarre and the use of allusion to offer us an immensely engaging and amusing menagerie. Classic Roger McGough...
