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. -- UKEdChat
Oh yes! This collection is very good indeed. -- TUC * poetryzone.co.uk *
The language chosen is rich and varied, offering challenge and requiring reflection. James Carter's use of a range of fonts adding a playful tone to many of the poems. Ed Boxall's lively illustrations add interest and are varied. A great collection for using in class and enjoying everywhere! -- The Book Blog, North Somerset Teachers' Book Award
James Carter's school visits have taken him, and his guitar, to over 1,200 primary schools in Britain over the last fourteen years. This collection, his twelfth, positively fizzes with energy, and suggests what a dynamic performer he must be in the classroom. * Children's Books Ireland *
