A great investment to introduce children to a superb poet * The Bookseller *
Nobody has produced more surprising verse or genuinely inspired fun than Adrian Mitchell -- Ted Hughes * Books For Keeps *
Endlessly entertaining * Booktrust *
Utterly distinctive and addictive ... every school library should have a copy * Nursery Education Plus *
'These vivid, surprising poems from the much-loved late Adrian Mitchell are about anything and everything. Some are playful, some are thoughtful, and they evoke all kinds of emotions. With their insistent rhythms, they'll be read and listened to again and again by readers of every age.' * Woman's Weekly *
'A volume which serves as a worthy memorial.' * Irish Times *
'Adrian Mitchell had that rare ability to appeal to all ages and this inspiring volume, illustrated with wit and energy by Tony Ross, is brimming with musical, provocative, humourous, challenging, but most of all life-affirming verse that should be read out loud every day. Anyone who can rhyme 'miserable' with 'inviserable' still has a child's heart beating inside him. A glorious reflection of the man himself - who forbade his poetry to be used in school examinations: a rebel with a cause.' * Daily Mail *
