Journey to the Centre of My Brain by James Carter

Join the party as he takes us on a trip to space, introduces us tigers, mammoths, clouds and bugs - and that's just the start of the journey ...


'James Carter is so good at making words sing and play, tell stories, transform themselves into wolves, the moon, guitars - in short, he makes words perform!'
