“Emma’s poems are full of life and laughs, bubbling with music and wisdom and silliness and jokes and cute animals. She’s a great performer of her work and the book is crammed with tips to help the reader become a performer too.”
A.F.Harrold – Bloomsbury Children’s Poet and has had his work on BBC Radio 4, Radio 3 and BBC7
“A delightful collection for children and grown ups to enjoy together.”

If you have seen her – well, you know what I mean…

I once Knew a Poem who Wore a Hat has won this year’s Rubery Award for Poetry! Beating adult and children’s poetry collections from around the world.
It is a rather special book – it will help any primary school child, and teacher with learning and reciting poetry (now a compulsory part of the school curriculum)- and the joy within its pages means it will make a wonderful (dare I say it?) Christmas Present!!
And I’ll be there too… I can’t wait! Nadia x
