About the Author

Joseph Coelho is a London-born poet and children's author. His poems have been published in several anthologies including Green Glass Beads, edited by Jacqueline Wilson. Joseph has been a guest poet on CBeebies 'Rhyme Rocket' where he was beamed up from 'The Rhyme Rock' to perform his Bug Poem and has featured alongside Michael Rosen and Valerie Bloom on Radio 4's Poetry Playtime. His debut children's collection, Werewolf Club Rules, was the winner of the 2015 CLPE CLiPPA Poetry Award. His collection for older readers Overheard In A Tower Block was long-listed for the 2018 Carnegie Medal and short-listed for the 2018 CLPE CliPPA Poetry Award. He features in 'Teach Poetry' a 10 part BBC online series that aims to make the writing of poetry fun and accessible to all. In addition to poetry, Joseph also writes picture books like the heart-rending If All The World Were... named as a Guardian Book Of The Month. All of his work has poetry and an element of performance at their heart making his festival and school sessions dynamic occasions.

Reviews

'This collection is an exciting trip around space for young readers. Zoom around this book to find aliens, stars and a greedy robot - as well as funny faces and a ball that won't bounce back! James Carter is an award-winning poet who knows just what children want - and space is always popular.'
"Poetry for children is dead. Really? Not when there are young poets Like Joseph Coelho.... Deceptively simple, these are poems that really do need to be read out aloud to be fully appreciated; it is perhaps, relevant that Joseph is a performance poet himself. Young readers are already familiar with stars such as McGough, Rosen, Ahlberg and Magee. Let us hope they will become as familiar with Joseph Coelho's work as he develops."
'...combines humour, thoughtfulness and sparkling word play in a range of poems that explore the everyday worlds of school and family...these poems will read aloud well and this imaginative collection will make an excellent addition to classroom shelves.'
