Product description

Brilliant writing plus witty illustrations by Chris Riddell: no corners are cut in Brian Patten’s glorious book of poetry. Funny, thought-provoking, lyrical, beautiful: it’s all of those things. A festival of poems that nobody should miss! There are moments of sheer beauty, as in Geraniums in the Snow. But there are also belly-laughs, daft surprises and surreal situations galore. Oh, and don’t miss Chris Riddell’s hilarious picture of the Vampire Duck. Just be warned: he gets hungry around midnight!

  • Verses full of magic and mayhem by top poet Brian Patten
  • Illustrations by former Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell
  • Reflective, funny, lyrical poems full of the joys of childhood
  • Brian’s work for both adults and children is loved worldwide
