Words are Power... and kids love the sound, feel, rhythm and punch of these verses, classroom and home favourites - at last collected together in one book for the first time.
Long-time classroom favourites with children up and down the country, these poems, sometimes funny, sometimes, thought-provoking, often anarchic, but always truthful, are collected in one book for the first time. The first volume, Poetry Is Boring!, is aimed at primary school readers, but older children too enjoy many of these verses. As one young reader told us: "I really like the poetry. I would advise it to other people my age group and older, in other words to everyone.”
Funny, sparkling and full of life, the poems deal with the realities of childhood - planning to skip homework, surviving lessons, handling parents, teachers, bullies and spots.
