Product Description

A whole host of zany characters can be found in this highly original and entertaining book of nonsense poems, all of which have been written to help children with their creative writing, reading and performance skills - a valuable resource at a very reasonable price!

Suitable for use in English or drama lessons and school assemblies, children, teachers and parents alike will have enormous fun reading these aloud!

Some of the poems are very short which makes them ideal for younger children who have little or no stage experience. Some of them, of course, are a little harder and some are quite virtuosic, suitable for older children who want to show off a bit. All of the pieces are intended to be funny and nearly all have a 'twist ending' - they're structured so you can pause just before the finish, smile and deliver the closing line, a useful skill to acquire at an early age!
