The Lovereading4Kids comment
Colin West writes wonderfully funny poetry for children and deserves to be a household name alongside Roger McGough and Michael Rosen. This collection is divided into sections including Dotty Ditties, Tricky Tongue-Twisters, Vicious Verses and Curious Creatures and is jam-packed with poems to make the reader laugh. As well as the eponymous budgie (A budgie’s not for nudging/and a budgie bears a grudge), there are hedgehogs, giraffes, alligators, jugglers and pirates – a huge variety of subjects - there are one hundred poems in fact, and each one is a little gem. Colin West’s own illustrations accompany his verses and add to the many pleasures of this book. ~ Andrea Reece

Never Nudge a Budgie! by Colin West
Colin West, the master of comic verse, has written and illustrated his funniest collection yet: Never Nudge a Budgie. The book is divided into seven sections and contains a hundred poems of different kinds - limericks, nonsense, tongue twisters, shape poems and rhymes. They are on a surprising and entertaining range of subjects, from the ogre doing yoga in a toga and the hedgehog's valentine to whether or not to be a bee. Some are old, some new; all are infused with Colin's wit and his quirky view of the world. And each poem is accompanied by a wonderful witty picture by the poet himself - don't miss his portrayal of the Blunderblat or of Betty eating spaghetti!
