Synopsis

All Things Weird and Wonderful by Stewart Henderson

Another collection of quirky, thought-provoking and highly entertaining poems from a performance poet with an increasing fan base. In this collection Stewart Henderson takes a sideways look at creation - from the depths of the sea, to the breadth of the earth, and the realms of space and sky - and featuring many aspects of the animal world. The poems are often shown from the perspective of a child (answering curious questions, or helping children to understand more about their place in the universe). Poems include short humorous verses, longer narrative poems and the poet's inimitable 'wry thoughts'.

About the Author

Stewart Henderson has been writing poetry since his teens, when his work was heavily influenced by the LIverpool Poets. He has since developed his own distinctive style of poetry which often takes a wry look at life. He currently works as a broadcaster, scriptwriter and performance poet in both the UK and USA.
