The Lovereading4Kids comment
5+. A fabulous collection of poems from one of the UK's best-loved poets. Deliciously witty, each of the fifty poems is a little firecracker of delight delivering knowledge and insights in a light and humorous way. Many are about animals and nature - The Meerkat Lullaby, Wasps, Every Little Breeze - and there is even one about pollen, but there are others about all kinds of subjects including the title poem, Lucky, the story of a boy who never managed to live up to his name. A collection to savour for its perfect use of language.
Lucky by Roger Mcgough
I'm older than my eldest son But younger than my mother One ear has an eagle tattooed on Skull and crossbones on the other What am I?
Solve riddles, find out how to please a weasel and discover what happened to the boy called Lucky! This brilliant collection is full of wit, wordplay and wisdom from Roger McGough, 'the trickster you can trust. A word juggler who never misses a catch' (Charles Causley). Includes new illustrations by the author.
'A stocking filler that will bring joy all year round is Roger McGough's superlatively witty, word-loving collection of poems.'
's play with words is laugh-aloud fun, but, at the same time stamps the delight of poetry on young minds. Irish Independent'
