There is not enough space to begin to tell you how fantastic this collection of poetry is. If you are looking to get your child into poetry, then this really is the best collection you can start with. I have used this with pre-school children who adore the humour and have really be inspired by the little ditties. Here is a little taster for you. Buy this book and let your children and yourself be inspired. 'To amuse emu's on warm summer nights, Kiwi's do wee-wee's from spectacular heights!' Totally brilliant!!
I discovered this book by chance at a Literature Festival - and what a pleasure it is to read! It is a wonderful selection of poems all about animals. I definitely recommend it for children ages 7 and up. My daughter thought it was very funny and the drawings are really good too! A must! Next time I hope to meet the author!
