Mad, Bad and Dangerously Haddock The Best from the Very Tall Poet by Andrew Fusek Peters


Mad, Bad and Dangerously Haddock The Best from the Very Tall Poet by Andrew Fusek Peters

At 6'8 1/2 , Andrew Fusek Peters is Britain's tallest poet. His collections include Sadderday and Funday, Love Hate and My Best Mate, and Poems with Attitude (the only poetry collection to have ever made the Carnegie long-list). This book combines a selection of the best of his published work, plus new material specially written with Lion's audience in mind. Andrew's poems focus on themes including family, friendship, pets, seasons and schools, and mix the side-splitting with the serious - making a varied and valuable collection.


'His anthologies are always surprising and interesting. He's done it again!... An excellent anthology'

'Punchy, funny but thought-provoking poems'

's Poetry Please'
