Synopsis

The Flying Spring Onion by Matthew Sweeney

In this poet's world, nothing is quite what you have been led to expect. Money does grow on trees, even fishbones can dream, and there is a Mr Bluejack who sticks his head in a freezer when it gets too hot. With monkeys in the spare bedroom and a butterfly-eating poodle in the bath, even everyday family life begins to look a bit odd. This book of poems for children is designed to help the reader explore the world of imagination and to open a world of possibilities.

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.
