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.
