“Emma’s poems are full of life and laughs, bubbling with music and wisdom and silliness and jokes and cute animals.
She’s a great performer of her work and the book is crammed with tips to help the reader become a performer too.
And as if that weren’t enough, Catherine’s fine and funny pictures add another dimension to the book (a picture-y dimension)”
A. F. Harrold – Bloomsbury Children’s Poet who has appeared on BBC Radio 4, Radio 3 and BBC7

They remind us that poetry should be spoken aloud and encourage us to do so, enjoying the poet’s skilful word play.
A delightful collection for children and grown-ups to enjoy together.”
