Enter the wacky, wordy worlds of my hilarious poetry books and I promise you will be hooked.
Here Come the Superheroes (Raps and Rhymes to Save the Galaxy)
A unique full-colour, A4-sized, comic book format collection of raps and rhymes introducing around thirty of the galaxy's newest superheroes plus a few of their evil adversaries. It's a must for KS2 & KS3 boys (and girls), especially those not so keen on reading. Characters include The Metal Man, Captain Polystyrene, Shine, Magnetic Me, Terrific Tot, Mega Slug, Micro Girl, Sister Speed, Bounce and many more. Additional secret data covers protagonists' top powers, planets of origin, deadliest enemies and other fascinating fun facts. Perfect for quiet reading, sharing aloud or performing. Incredible illustrations by Chris White. £7, signed and dedicated, if visiting your school.
It's Not Fine to Sit on a Porcupine and Bees in My Bananas
It's Not Fine to Sit on a Porcupine (a BookTrust's Children's Poetry Favourite) and Bees in My Bananas (winner of a Wishing Shelf Independent Book Award) are mixed anthologies of my poems for Key Stage 2 & 3 but frequently bought by Key Stage 1 and adults too. Around fifty funny poems and many dotty, daft illustrations are contained within them. £7 each, signed and dedicated, if visiting your school.
SSSSNAP! Mr Shark and Odd Socks
These two books are fantastic introductions to performance poetry for Early Years and Key Stage 1. Illustrated in dazzling full colour by champion doodler Chris White, both feature just one poem that children can join in with by calling and acting out the lines. £6 each, signed and dedicated, if visiting your school.
Buying My Books
You can buy my books directly from me to tie in with my visit to your school or library. They are also available from any major wholesalers such as Askews & Holts, Gardners, Bertram etc and many retail and online outlets including Amazon.
