Overview

A reissue of Michael Rosen's wonderfully funny and poignant collection of poetry A wonderfully exuberant yet poignant poetry collection from one of Britain's greatest children's poets Michael Rosen. Some poems are funny, some are sad, there are longer story poems and poems to ponder, such as how great would Satnav trousers be! Former Children's Laureate, Michael continuously promotes the need for children's poetry in our education system, and this collection, first published in 2010, continues to delight readers young and old.

Reviews

Michael Rosen is a poet with a superb ear for the rhythms of language * Guardian * One of our most popular writers - the champion for every bored, overdrilled, tested-to-tears pupil in the land * The Times * I think poetry for children needs to be saved from the cold dissection of right and wrong answers and put back into rooms and halls full of wonder, compassion, haunting, laughter, music and rhythm. We need to hear its many cultures, many voices, many sounds. This is about wide and diverse participation. Diverse verse for all! * Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 20072009 * Nothing about this playful free verse is obscure or difficult, yet it revels in the sounds and meanings of words. It contains whimsy, flights of fancy and even satire. * The Times *
