Age 7+. A wonderful collection of mad love poems that will make you giggle, squirm and swoon. When frogs don’t turn into princes and a whale falls head over tail for a submarine, love really does turn upside down.

Synopsis

My Cat is in Love with The Goldfish and Other Loopy Love Poems by Graham Denton

Following the same successful formula of The Secret Life of Pants and Let's Recycle Grandad, My Cat is in Love with the Goldfish is a compilation of the loopiest love poems ever brought together in one collection. This is a truly original and engaging book of poems that kids will find impossible to resist. Forget the Owl and the Pussycat, here we've got the skunk and the porcupine, the octopus and the rhinoceros, a whale that falls head over tail for a submarine, and much more besides. With tongue twisters, limericks, epitaphs, haiku, love songs, and wonderfully witty wordplay throughout, My Cat is in Love with the Goldfish is a refreshing new take on one of poetry's perennial themes.
