The Lovereading4Kids comment
It’s spook o’clock alright in this excellent collection of scary poems and what a range of subject, tone and form there is to enjoy. Here are funny poems – of course - some silly ones, and some that are really quite haunting. A number are inspired by real places – Brian Moses takes us on an Edinburgh ghost walk ‘half hoping something will appear/half hoping something won’t’ and wonders how it would affect you to live in World’s End, while James Carter imagines scary things lurking in the teacher’s cupboard! They’ve obviously relished creating this collection, and their enthusiasm is catching. Illustrations by Chris Garbutt add to the fun and with Hallowe’en approaching, there are tricks and treats aplenty here. ~ Andrea Reece
Spooky Poems by James Carter, Brian Moses
Spooky Poems is a collection of scary poems about ghosts, ghouls, bats, witches, vampires and all things creepy.
A Good Scary Poem Needs...A haunted house, a pattering mouse. A spooky feeling, a spider-webbed ceiling. A squeaking door, a creaking floor. A swooping bat, the eyes of a cat. A dreadful dream, a distant scream. A ghost that goes 'BOO' and You by bestselling poets James Carter and Brian Moses.
