Product Description

Review

'I think poetry for children needs to be saved from the cold dissection of right and wrong answers and put back into rooms and halls full of wonder, compassion, haunting, laughter, music and rhythm. We need to hear its many cultures, many voices, many sounds. This is about wide and diverse participation. Diverse verse for all!' -- Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 2007--2009 'Michael Rosen is a poet with a superb ear for the rhythms of language' -- Guardian 'One of our most popular writers -- the champion for every bored, overdrilled, tested-to-tears pupil in the land' -- The Times

About the Author

Michael Rosen is one of the best-known figures not only in the children's book world but also the British arts scene. His first book of children's poems was published in 1974, and he has gone on to write numerous award-winning children's poetry books, picture books and non-fiction, such as Quick, Let's Get Out of Here and We're Going on a Bear Hunt. Alongside this he performs, teaches, lectures, presents Word of Mouth on Radio 4 and reviews books for the Guardian. In 2007, Michael was appointed the fifth Children's Laureate -- a role which he says will be used to be an 'ambassador of fun'.

This is the best poetry book I have ever read. I especially enjoyed Rosen's poems about his youngest son 'Eddie'. My favourite poem is on page 13 of the book it is entitled 'Harrybo' and it is about Rosen's best friend. This book is suitable for male and female readers of all ages, all you need to enjoy it is a sense of humour!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 16 Mar. 2008
Format:Paperback
This book is a collection of perfect poems. I enjoyed most of them, however, some of the long ones made me a bit bored. My favourite poem is called `Butter and Margarine' because it is very funny and (kind of) original. It starts with: `Row, Row, Row your Boat, Gently down the Stream, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily'. Then it goes on to say `Life is but a - no it's not, it's margarine!' It is a bit of a joke but then again most of Michael Rosen (the poet)'s poems are hilarious! I would really rate this book 7/ 10 and would strongly recommend it to anyone in the need of a good laugh!

4.0 out of 5 stars fun 19 Oct. 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I always enjoy Michael Rosen books and the children in my class fall about laughing and ask for poems to be read over and over again. Maybe it is not quite as good as "Quick, let's get out of here" but still worth having.
