Synopsis

My Dog Is a Carrot by John Hegley

A delightful collection of quirky poems by one of this country's most popular poets.Enter the celebrated poet's weird, witty, bespectacled world and meet the organic leek who has learned to speak, the octopus who gets a nasty shocktopus, the man who drew his cornflakes and a whole cast of other interesting characters. Surprising, serious, and sometimes just plain silly, this is a collection of poems even your dog might like. Unless your dog is a carrot too.

Reviews

Beautifully produced with exciting artwork, this book is a pleasure to behold ... It's a truly brilliant book to give to a child that thinks he or she doesn't like poetry. * The Irish Post *
