The Lovereading4Kids comment

Boys will devour this brilliantly funny collection of poetry with poems about secrets, about scary things, about home truths and about pants, of course. Rest assured there will be loud squeals and plenty of laughter wherever this book goes.

Synopsis

Secret Life Of Pants by Roger Stevens

A book of poems about pants (and other things besides) which are grouped under five themed chapters - poems to make you laugh, to drive you mad, to make you sick, to scare you, and thoughtful/serious or sad poems. They are in a variety of genres and styles, from haiku and limericks, to sonnets and sestinas.

Reviews

Perfect for reading on a dull, wet day, it's impossible not to feel one's mood being elevated and enhanced by always bright - sometimes brash - poetic offerings... A pant-astically absorbing collection of new poems to pamper oneself with... Primarily a fun book to read, this serves as an excellent introduction to poetry. Achuka Reviews (11th September 2006)

These poems and riddles are great for dipping into. TBK Magazine (November/December 2006)
