Review

His poems will work their magic on all readers, and each one finds something new to say, and the perfect way to say it. A treat from first page to last. - --Andrea Reece, Lovereading4kids.co.uk

To me, this is what teaching poetry should be about in primary schools; pushing boundaries of language conventions as well as using humour to capture attention. The mix of poems throughout the book are fantastic in exploring different forms of poetry, inspiring pupils to create their own versions which can be very rewarding and less overwhelming than other forms of writing. - --UKEd Chat

Oh yes! This collection is very good indeed. - --TUC, poetryzone.co.uk

About the Author

An award-winning children's poet, James Carter travels all over the cosmos (well, Britain) with his guitar (that's Keith) to give lively poetry performances and workshops. James once had hair, extremely long hair (honestly), and he played in a really nasty ultra-loud heavy rock band. And, as a lifelong space cadet, James has discovered that poems are the best place to gather all his daydreamy thoughts. What's more, he believes that daydreaming for ten minutes every day should be compulsory in all schools."
