Blue Balloons and Rabbit Ears
An appealing collection for young children, illustrated by the poet. Full of fun and rhyme and rhythm and a variety of verse forms, whether it’s a conversation about a naughty girl called Sally McDuff or a meditation on the miseries of being a goalkeeper. It includes thoughtful themes about nature and history too. You can travel back in time to a life in a long ago age by handling an ancient axe head or imagine yourself shrunk to a tiny size and crawling around under a forest canopy of kale.
