The Lovereading4Kids comment
Age 7+. A wonderful collection of witty and thought provoking poems on every subject you can think of. Ever thought Why Toads Look Much More Serious Than Frogs? Probably not. But, after reading Brian Patten’s poem you may look at a pond in a whole new way!
Thawing Frozen Frogs by Brian Patten
I nibbled a mother, But wanting something new I boiled a bit of Granny And tried some Uncle-stew. I did not eat the baby, That was out of the question. (And anyway they wriggle And cause indigestion.)
Ever joined a Giant's family dinner, kept a pet wig, thawed a frozen frog or snaffled a giraffe? Thawing Frozen Frogs is a brilliantly inventive collection from one of the UK's top performance poets, including a wide range of poems that showcase Brian Patten's wit, slapstick humour, wisdom and sensitivity - and his poetry's huge appeal to children of all ages. Perfect for reading at school or at home, out loud or by yourself. Illustrated with Chris Riddell's funny and illuminating line drawings.
New edition of a critically acclaimed collection which has been unavailable for several years.
Praise for Brian Patten:
'A magic ability to turn radiant imagination loose' - The Times
