From hairy jellybeans to beautiful daydreams, the poems within this debut collection are fun and imaginative. They aim to spark familiarity and inclusion, and expand the mind in curious and imaginative ways.
Written for 7-11 year olds, and beautifully illustrated by talented young illustrator Katy Riddell, these poems use rhythm, rhyme and free verse, and are ideally suited to performance in a school setting, nurturing a love of language, reading, confidence and self expression.
A Note From the Publisher

‘Alex Wharton’s wide-ranging poems about both the natural and human world, filled with keen observation, thoughtfulness and vivid bouncing rhythms, are wonderfully partnered with Katy Riddell’s perfect illustrations which breathe extra life into every page.’
AF Harrold, Midnight Feasts
'This is a lovely, warm collection of poems that hail from a place of wonder and mystery.'
Joshua Seigal, Welcome to my Crazy Life
In September 2020, we ran a children's poetry competition which gave 7-11 year olds the chance to write their own poem for inclusion in the collection.
Our two fantastic winners have had their poems illustrated and included at the back of the collection!
