The Lovereading4Kids comment

A super new collection of poems featuring a vast range of animals, birds and fish, from the penguin in lost property making a bid for freedom, to the cat that would rather be eating spiders than lapping up milk. Funny and poignant, there are poems here for every mood from two brilliant, funny and inspiring poets.

About the Author

Roger Stevens is an author and poet who has been writing for children for twenty-five years. In that time he has had twenty-five books published, including several novels and numerous solo poetry collections. His poems also feature in many anthologies. When not writing, he visits schools, libraries and festivals performing his work and running workshops for young people and teachers. Roger lives with his wife in France and in Brighton.

Jan Dean lives near Manchester but spends as much time as possible in East Devon. She enjoys lots of messy stuff - painting, gluing, digging holes in the garden and making bread. She likes earrings and often wears an enormous pair of giraffes (or penguins) when she visits schools to perform her poetry and write with classes.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
