Age 7+ poetry. Selected by our poetry expert, Liam Parkin: When Granny Won Olympic Gold is a lively, humorous collection of medal-winning sports poems that children aged 7 or 8+ will love. It includes plenty of humorous rhymes along with some moving and thought-provoking poems, and features all kinds of writing styles - from haiku to limericks. The collection is publishing at a perfect time to build on the increased interest in all things Olympic in the lead-up to 2012 London Olympics.
Age 7+. A wonderful collection of mad love poems that will make you giggle, squirm and swoon. When frogs don’t turn into princes and a whale falls head over tail for a submarine, love really does turn upside down.
From Friday the 13th through Lucky Pants to counting magpies this hilarious collection covers all angles of superstitions with poems that children will really want to read. A short favourite of mine is: I have a bag of apples which I keep just near the bed, and when the doctor rings the bell I pelt one at his head! â€“ Geoff Lowe. So, turn around three times, throw salt over your shoulder and buy the book.
