Book Description

15 Jan 2011 Childrens Poetry Library
In the Land of the Flibbertigibbets is a collection of playful poems and versatile verses bound to entertain and capture the imagination of the young reader. From poems about a wizard’s dragon and a dinosaurs’ health spa, nonsense versions of nursery rhymes and fantastic football results, to a cautionary tale about a boy who is always sticking his tongue out. These new poems for children aged 7 to 12, include wordplay poems about anagrams and homonyms, a word-building poem about how to make a teacher, a chant about onomatopoeia and a poem about peculiar plurals. Haikus and clerihews, epitaphs and epigrams, kennings and lists make up this inventive collection.

Product Description


John Foster's sharp eye has caught exactly how children view school, parents, siblings, friends and much more besides. His sharp ear has caught children's language enabling him to write poems that speak directly to them.--Children's Books of the Year


John Foster is that rarest of poets – unpretentious, accessible, straightforward and popular. A master craftsman and trusted wordsmith, he writes poems that I wish I’d written. (Paul Cookson )
