Reviews

"I'm a Little Alien is a fantastic collection of poems that will excite and engage young readers, drawing on children's immediate interests and experiences. Children will be transported on a journey into space alongside endearing characters such as Oggy the robot; learning a wealth of new and exciting vocabulary and concepts. Children can dive into poems based on the seaside and animals; poems such as Bucket invite children to use their imaginations and visualise concepts. Endearing illustrations by Mique Moriuchi are the perfect companions to the poems. Ideal for supporting learning and development across the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage One, this collection allows adults and children alike to explore a range of poetry. A must-have for classrooms everywhere." Charlotte Hacking, Teaching and Learning Manager, Centre For Literacy In Primary Education

Praise for Hey, Little Bug!:

About the Author

James Carter

James Carter is an award-winning children's poet. He travels all over the cosmos (well, Britain), with his guitar (that's Keith) to give lively poetry performances and workshops. James once had hair, extremely long hair (honestly), and he played in a really nasty ultra-loud heavy rock band. And, as a lifelong space cadet, James has discovered that poems are the best place to gather all his daydreamy thoughts. What's more, he believes that daydreaming for ten minutes every day should be compulsory in all schools. His poetry titles include Cars Stars Electric Guitars and Orange Silver Sausage (Walker Books) and Time-Travelling Underpants and Greetings, Earthlings! (Macmillan). James was the major contributor to the recent Cbeebies TV series Poetry Pie. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.
