Synopsis

Centrally Heated Knickers by Michael Rosen

Reviews

Michael Rosen is a poet with a superb ear for the rhythms of language * Guardian * One of our most popular writers - the champion for every bored, overdrilled, tested-to-tears pupil in the land * The Times * I think poetry for children needs to be saved from the cold dissection of right and wrong answers and put back into rooms and halls full of wonder, compassion, haunting, laughter, music and rhythm. We need to hear its many cultures, many voices, many sounds. This is about wide and diverse participation. Diverse verse for all! * Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 2007-2009 *

Michael Rosen on Michael Rosen:

Most of my adult life, I've been a freelance writer, teacher (of sorts), journalist, performer and broadcaster. I visit schools doing my one-man show, and support Arsenal Football Club.

I have often written about my life and family, but I also write occasional fantasy (usually based in a real place) and non-fiction.

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
