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.

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

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.

Katie Lonsdale

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

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.

Angela East

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
