STEVE TURNER is a performance poet and journalist. Author of several anthologies of adult verse, children's poetry and many rock biographies. DAVID MOSTYN is a widely published cartoonist and illustrator.
Gr 3-5-Turner's collection enters the well-worn landscape of humorous poetry for children-a territory already well populated with works by Shel Silverstein, Jack Prelutsky, John Ciardi, William Cole, and others. Many of these light verses have child appeal, although often of the most obvious sort ("O nose, you know that I did not choose you/I did not vote `yes' with a tick./But, nose, you know if I started again/You'd be the first nose I would pick"). The selections are clearly British, but American readers will have no trouble translating words like "mates" and "Mum" or spellings like "coloured" and "yoghurt." An additional purchase for most libraries.-Kathleen Whalin, Greenwich Country Day School, CT Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
`One of the most original and child-friendly voices to emerge in the last few years. Eight-to 12-year-olds will enjoy the mix of quirky humour with a serious underbelly.' * The Sunday Telegraph * `Highly observant, often poignant, always fresh and funny.' -- Nick Park, creator of Wallace and Gromit
