If ... you still think, 'I don't like poetry,' this might be the collection for you: Joshua Seigal's very imaginative and wonderful collection. * The Times on 'I Don't Like Poetry' *
When you read this book, the windows will burp and the grass will turn blue. That's how magic these poems are. * Michael Rosen on 'I Don't Like Poetry' *
This is a great collection of genuinely funny poems and they're refreshingly original for older primary kids, reflecting their lives and interests. * BookTrust on 'I Bet I Can Make You Laugh' *
The poems are so playful, gleefully heading off in unexpected directions, and so full of surprises, that it sometimes feels that it's only the rhythm and the rhyme that is holding them on the page. -- Lucy Staines * Books for Keeps *
Joshua Seigal is well known for his humorous and inspiring poems and this new collection is every bit as wonderful as his other books. Full of excellent poems, it is perfect for sharing at home or school or for curling up with on your own. * North Somerset Teachers Book Awards *
It's full of fun wordplay, rhymes and humour - nicely illustrated by Sarah Horne - but centred on the sort of things that younger children enjoy and are familiar with. * Poetry Zone *
This is such a lovely collection of poetry. Both of my children, although in particular my 5-year-old, have loved listening to the poems. There have been some that have made them laugh out loud, and others they've enjoyed for how they sound or how the poem looks on the page. -- Brightibel * Toppsta *
A brilliant creation of a variety of poems, carefully crafted by Joshua that can be used in any classroom to spark creativity and imagination. -- @digicoled * UKEdChat *
Yapping Away by the fab @joshuaseigal @KidsBloomsbury poems that are accessible but don't talk down. Deceptively simple poignant poems and full belly laughs. -- @SueHardyDawson, poet
Yapping Away published @[email protected] has created an eclectic collection of poems short & snappy with plenty of rhythm & rhyme to enjoy reading aloud, with repeated refrains & onomatopoeia. Handy teachers notes at the back & black & white drawings by @sarahhorne9 -- West Sussex Schools Library Service
