Funky Chickens

Written by Benjamin Zephaniah

Funky Chickens Synopsis

Enter the crazy world of rap poet Benjamin Zephaniah! A reissue of the wonderfully irreverent collection of poetry for young people, touching on anything from vegetables to the Queen and from sewage to the sun. There's plenty of humour as well as poems on racism, pollution and the murder of a cat.

Funky Chickens Press Reviews

Benjamin Zephaniah's poems are short, funny and modern. This is poetry with attitude * The Times * Zephaniah is the reigning king of children's poetry... He has an unselfconscious relish for language and word-play that never strays into the patronising dee-dum-dee-dum-dee-dum territory of so much of children's poetry: his are poems that bounce up from the page and demand to be read, rapped, sung and hip-hopped aloud. * Independent on Sunday *
