Paul Cookson's staggeringly versatile range as a performance poet is fully displayed in this new collection. Humour, danger, wonder, surprise are the elements underlying his work. The collection contains some poems that need to be shouted and some that have to be whispered very quietly. There are many interactive poems in which a whole class or group of children can participate.

BEEP BEEP ! WHOOSH!

A great one to do with a high pitched "Beep Beep" and an extended quieter "Whoosh!"

Silver saucer shining bright

Flashing beams and laser lights

Beep ! Beep Whoosh!

Beep Beep! Whoosh!

Faster than the speed of sound

See it spinning round and round

Beep! Beep! Whoosh!

Beep! Beep ! Whoosh!

Dissipates, evaporates

Hovers, dives and levitates

Beep ! Beep Whoosh!

Beep Beep! Whoosh!

Breaking laws of gravity

Maximum velocity

Beep ! Beep Whoosh!

Beep Beep! Whoosh!

Like a diamond in the sky

Beaming down from way on high

Beep ! Beep Whoosh!

Beep Beep! Whoosh!

Nasty pilot, nasty crew

Coming down for me and you

Beep ! Beep Whoosh!

Beep Beep! Whoosh ...
