When de July sun hot like fire, Den I have jus' one desire, To run down to de shop an' buy a Kisko pop. The World Is Sweet and Hot Like Fire published in one volume for the first time. Valerie Bloom's poetry is beautifully crafted yet full of energy and fun. Her mixed use of standard English and dialect is a delight to read and hear. Children love reading and listening to her work! Valerie's subjects range from global pollution, problems with maths homework and the sad demise of pet frogs (he croaked of course) to taking sandwiches to school and being afraid of ghosts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Will ignite children's interest in poetry The book's content covers issues from global warming to themes such as bumblebees - both to entertain and provoke discussion' Child Education Plus '[Hot Like Fire and Other Poems] exhibits [Bloom's] strengths: her relish for the peculiarities of language (whether it's turns of phrase or word play, her storytelling skills, her emotional sensitivity, her sense of fun, her ability to enter into a child's world, and, above all, her love of rhythm and the pure sound and pattern of words ... These are the strengths of a poet who, while never stooping to easy crowd pleasing, can enthral an audience with the pure magic of her words' Books for Keeps 'The poems are wonderful to read and are full of colour and rhyme ... great to read alone or with a group' Creative Steps
