Hot Like Fire and other poems

Author: Valerie Bloom
Illustrator: Debbie Lush
Publisher: Bloomsbury

Valerie Bloom’s sizzling poems, some in Jamaican Creole, some in standard English, bring light and life to diverse aspects of everyday life. These include a family shopping trip, being late for school and eating familiar food. Some poems rejoice with clever wordplay (see ‘Neighbours’) and many end with adept twists in the tail. This edition of this poetry collection contains books previously published separately as The World is Sweet and Hot Like Fire.

By the same poet: Stars with Flaming Tails, illustrated by Ken Wilson-Max (9781913074678), Otter-Barry Books £7.99
