The Lovereading4Kids comment

What do you mean you don’t like poetry? This must mean you’ve not read the debut collection of poems from Joshua Seigal! Whether it’s poems about the power of books or the joys of fried chicken, once you’ve read Joshua’s poems you’ll be shouting from the rooftops that poetry is the place to be!

Packed with subversive humour and a real insight into the world of children today, I Don’t Like Poetry will please the most reluctant of poem readers whether they want something funny, sad or scary. It is a wonderful collection that shows a new poet at his best.

If you are a school you can also get a free pack of 30 Bookmarks. To claim them just email admin@lovereading.co.uk with your name and school address.

Synopsis

I Don't Like Poetry by Joshua Seigal

I'm a lovely little poem. I'm snoozing in your book. I'm like a dainty dragonfly - Come and have a look.

With poems on every topic from the power of books to the joys of fried chicken, this collection is packed with Joshua Seigal's subversive humour and insight into the world of children. If you don't like poetry after reading this, there's probably something wrong with you!

Reviews

When you read this book, the windows will burp and the grass will turn blue. That's how magic these poems are. -- Michael Rosen

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.
