The Lovereading4Kids comment
When I hear the word word
My brain goes blurred
My mind feels furred.
Word is a strange word isn’t it?
It has too many meanings, doesn’t it?
After all, everything’s a word.
Ros Asquith is a Guardian Cartoonist and already a hugely successful author for children and young people, creator of the Alien Schoolboy and Teenage Worrier books amongst others, but this is her first collection of poetry and it is really very good indeed. There’s a huge variety of form and subject in the collection, poems to make you laugh, insightful comments on the world and people around us, poems to make you stop short and think. Ros Asquith’s own witty illustrations make it particularly accessible but this is a sophisticated collection. ~ Andrea Reece
Vanishing Trick Poems by Ros Asquith by Ros Asquith
Life is dull for a dragon. For a dragon, time drags on. Frighten kid, eat princess, Breathe fire, cause distress. Day after deadly day, the same. Eat, scare, sleep, flame. How to be Batman, the Year Six Disco, the school bully, being alone, best mates, being a dragon...or vanishing - FWOOF! Funny, clever and thought-provoking, these poems are brilliant for reading at school or at home. With witty illustrations by the author, this is an exciting and distinctive debut collection.
