In the Land of the Flibbertigibbets is a collection of playful poems and versatile verses bound to entertain and capture the imagination of the young reader. From poems about a wizard's dragon and a dinosaurs' health spa, nonsense versions of nursery rhymes and fantastic football results, to a cautionary tale about a boy who is always sticking his tongue out. These new poems for children aged 7 to 12, include wordplay poems about anagrams and homonyms, a word-building poem about how to make a teacher, a chant about onomatopoeia and a poem about peculiar plurals. Haikus and clerihews, epitaphs and epigrams, kennings and lists make up this inventive collection.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A collection of poems in which he moves expertly from puns and poetic lists to clerihews and concrete poem creations. It's clever stuff, entertaining and eclectic, and really is wizardish with words.

-- Wes Magee

John Foster writes verse for children with understanding and with no trace of superiority. In their wisdom and enlightenment they are outstanding.

-- Junior Bookshelf

John Foster's sharp eye has caught exactly how children view school, parents, siblings, friends and much more besides. His sharp ear has caught children's language enabling him to write poems that speak directly to them.
