Steve Turner's first book of poetry for children is a delightful collection of thought provoking, quirky, humorous verse. I have shared many of the poems with my class of 6 year olds, who loved who begged for more, but there is something in this book for everybody - even grown ups! Many of the poems are really fast paced, and seem to capture the sheer exuberance of young children - just read The Jumping Game or I can't sit still! for example. Steve Turner has an ability to appeal to a child's sense of fun, and yet also write poems which deal with life's big questions. The book is illustrated throughout with David Mostyn's excellent drawings which complement Steve's style perfectly. For me, Steve Turner's collection illustrates the power, beauty and sheer fun of words... a book that's worth every penny!
