Synopsis

Cars, Stars, Electric Guitars by James Carter

This is an acclaimed collection of funny and tender poems from a widely-anthologized poet. Rummage around inside James Carter's head and find Darren the dolphin-shaped balloon; a list of things to ask Noah; two poems about crisps; plenty of shape poems; a world record attempt; and lots, lots more, in this remarkable, funny and highly original poetry collection.

Reviews

Shows a quick wilted, energised poet working his way through a whole host of fresh approaches to verse. This slim book fairly fizzes with ideas. Junior Education James Carter is an exciting new voice - Imaginative and Innovative. Children will love these poems. Jacqueline wilson

About the Author

James Carter

James Carter is an award-winning children's poet. He travels all over the cosmos (well, Britain), with his guitar (that's Keith) to give lively poetry performances and workshops. James once had hair, extremely long hair (honestly), and he played in a really nasty ultra-loud heavy rock band. And, as a lifelong space cadet, James has discovered that poems are the best place to gather all his daydreamy thoughts. What's more, he believes that daydreaming for ten minutes every day should be compulsory in all schools. His poetry titles include Cars Stars Electric Guitars and Orange Silver Sausage (Walker Books) and Time-Travelling Underpants and Greetings, Earthlings! (Macmillan). James was the major contributor to the recent Cbeebies TV series Poetry Pie. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.
