The Lovereading4Kids comment

From Friday the 13th through Lucky Pants to counting magpies this hilarious collection covers all angles of superstitions with poems that children will really want to read.

A short favourite of mine is:

I have a bag of apples which I keep just near the bed, and when the doctor rings the bell I pelt one at his head! – Geoff Lowe.

So, turn around three times, throw salt over your shoulder and buy the book.
