A collection of brand new poems by this award-winning poet, all inspired by the objects found in a pocket! Just when might that piece of string come in useful? And how much longer will the pencil stub last? No one can else can have the lovely shiny button, which is wrapped up in Fluff at the bottom of a pocket. Vivacious and enticing, Tony Mitton's poetry bubbles with playfulness and originality. The poems explore different poetry 'forms' (limericks, cinquains, shape poems, tankas and more) - all required study under the National Literacy Strategy providing a great springboard into creative writing for school use.
