    This book is a combination of poems written by 10 very different poets who all have their own style and humour There are ten sections within the book with a variety of illustrations that are vibrant and set the scenes for the stories The illustrations of each section are also very different which I think enlivens the poets perspectives.The poems have distinct differences of style and include a range of topics from day to day activities to complete nonsensical rhymes What I really liked about This book is a combination of poems written by 10 very different poets who all have their own style and humour There are ten sections within the book with a variety of illustrations that are vibrant and set the scenes for the stories The illustrations of each section are also very different which I think enlivens the poets perspectives.The poems have distinct differences of style and include a range of topics from day to day activities to complete nonsensical rhymes What I really liked about this book is the fact that the poets have been interviewed by a young person and so gives an insight into the poets ideas and inspirations Many of these interviews are humorous and really make it clear that anyone can be a poet as we all have often unique ideas about ourselves, our lives and the things that matter to us It s an excellent way to personalise poetry and give the idea that poetry is just as simple as writing a story Some of the poems such as My Cat Plumduff and The Squrdle are ridiculous but have a lovely rhythm and are silly enough for children to enjoy I think this book would be a great introduction for KSY2 to write their own poetry and get the feel for what poetry is about

    I purchased this book when I was eight years old at my primary school s annual book fayre and though it s an oldie by my mother s standards, it is a book that I keep going back to even if it is 12 years later It is the book that first got me interested in poetry and I think that is perhaps why I love it so much.
