Joshua Seigal is a rising star in the children’s poetry world and this new collection of his poems will be a real crowd-pleaser. Many of them are crying out to be read aloud, Brontosaurus for example, with its Stomp Swamp Chomp chorus, or My Dog Eats Spaghetti, but others are quieter, to be read, considered and remembered. He has particular fun with shape poems, of which there are many, look out for the Fruit Bat and Bat’s Fruit pairing! For children inspired to write their own poetry – and Seigal certainly makes it look fun – there are useful tips and suggestions included too. ~ Andrea Reece
A dragon's sneeze, a dinosaur, a wizard's spell, a monster's claw. All these things and many more - that's what's in a poem.
