Synopsis

Cat Among the Pigeons Poems by Kit Wright

A brilliantly funny collection of poems involving everyone's favourite anti-hero Dave Dirt, the extraordinary afternoon of a prawn and the mysterious tale of Zoe's earrings. Witty, touching and clever - this is a classic collection from the irreverent Kit Wright.

Reviews

Kit Wright's poetry for children has an exuberance, a vitality, and a technical virtuosity that works equally well on the page or when read aloud. Twentieth Century Children's Writers One of the most able poets for children around is Kit Wright. Independent Enchanting... will cause rapturous giggles as well as encouraging a sense of word play and imagery that no home should be without. Daily Telegraph He's funny, clever, nimble and moving. Above all, his poetic generosity refuses to consider serious subjects as out of bounds just because he's writing for a young audience. Evening Standard

About the Author

Kit Wright's father was a schoolmaster who loved reading and writing light-hearted verse. He encouraged Kit too and Kit began poetry from the age of six, continuing to do so ever since. Kit soon established himself as one of the most able poets for children around with collections such as Arthur's Father and Cat Among the Pigeons. TES said of him that among children's writers he has perhaps the finest ear for poetry's rythms and cadences.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – 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.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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!
