The Lovereading4Kids comment

Yes, there’s a poem to a space cadet in this typically lively, inviting and memorable new collection from James Carter; but it’s an ode not to an astronaut but to a dreamer, someone whose head is firmly in a cloud. This whole collection is full of surprises, unexpected heroes and the joy of dreaming. In a poem called ‘Hey,Poem!’ Carter exhorts it: ‘poem, work your magic, do – but most of all say something NEW …’. His poems will work their magic on all readers, and each one finds something new to say, and the perfect way to say it. A treat from first page to last. ~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

James Carter

James Carter is an award-winning children's poet. He travels all over the cosmos (well, Britain), with his guitar (that's Keith) to give lively poetry performances and workshops. James once had hair, extremely long hair (honestly), and he played in a really nasty ultra-loud heavy rock band. And, as a lifelong space cadet, James has discovered that poems are the best place to gather all his daydreamy thoughts. What's more, he believes that daydreaming for ten minutes every day should be compulsory in all schools. His poetry titles include Cars Stars Electric Guitars and Orange Silver Sausage (Walker Books) and Time-Travelling Underpants and Greetings, Earthlings! (Macmillan). James was the major contributor to the recent Cbeebies TV series Poetry Pie. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
