"A spectacular collection...The superb use of vocabulary and varying styles of poetry will have teachers excited to share this collection. The illustrations by Neal Layton are perfectly suited to James Carter's poems: quirky, apt and stylish. This is one of those impressive, high-quality collections we need to share with our students. Brilliantly written and fun for all - this is one not to be missed."

"These are poems to be read aloud as well as read to oneself. They de-mystify poetry and will provide a foundation from which a lifelong love and appreciation can grow."
