I’ll be there too – with the Rubery Award for Poetry – both to present to Emma and Cath – and to get a photo for The Rubery’s website (and enjoy the poems and pictures!!) Good Family Fun !!

A terrific book, bursting with energy and ideas. The illustrations are as wonderful as the poems and it’s already a firm favourite with my nieces.
What a book – what poems, what illustrations… From the first page to the last an absolute joy-filled and hilarious read. Set against amazing, funny illustrations.
So much fun!! And so inventive – both the quirky poems and the wonderful illustrations.
Marvellous poems brought even more to life with illustrations to die for. LOVE IT!

A book that make poetry fun to read and perform. one of a kind
As A.F. Harrold says on the front of the book : “Bubbling with wisdom and silliness” This book has fantastic poems, wonderful illustrations and even performance tips. I have seen children as young as five right up to men and women in the eighties be enthralled, engaged, and laugh out loud at this.. what more can you want?!
