I Bet I Can Make You Laugh Press Reviews

This collection of very funny poems - from an acrostic poem that doesn't quite work, to a love letter to someone the poet doesn't really like - are, in many cases, hilariously uncomplimentary! ... this is a great collection of genuinely funny poems and they're refreshingly original for older primary kids, reflecting their lives and interests. - BookTrust

I think any reader would find it hard not only to avoid laughing, but to stop themselves reading the poems aloud - they are absolutely begging to be performed! -- Library Girl and Book Boy

A great book for home or the classroom (and great for reducing stress whilst cooking!). -- K and O: Bonkers About Books -
