The Lovereading4Kids comment

Age 7+. Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen brilliantly entertaining poems capture all kinds of moments of childhood – funny, sad, outrageous, tender, serious – many of which happened in his own childhood. Through them he charts some terrible things he did as a child – including breaking a toothbrush! – as well as some not so terrible but still highly entertaining. Great for reading aloud with your children.

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.
