5+. A fabulous collection of poems from one of the UK's best-loved poets. Deliciously witty, each of the fifty poems is a little firecracker of delight delivering knowledge and insights in a light and humorous way. Many are about animals and nature - The Meerkat Lullaby, Wasps, Every Little Breeze - and there is even one about pollen, but there are others about all kinds of subjects including the title poem, Lucky, the story of a boy who never managed to live up to his name. A collection to savour for its perfect use of language.

This brilliant collection is full of wit, wordplay and wisdom from Roger McGough, 'the trickster you can trust. A word juggler who never misses a catch' (Charles Causley). Includes new illustrations by the author.
