About this product
- DescriptionThis is a very funny, witty, zany collection for children, which will also appeal to the author' s adult fans. It has all the John Hegley comic hallmarks, including references to wearing glasses, Luton, and dogs (being superior to cats)! The poems are arranged alphabetically by title, with family pets and other animals featuring strongly, from a mos-quito and ants, through wise camels, goldfish and guillemots to Toby the armadillo from Peru and t forgetting the unusual unicorn in school. The book is packed with John' s unique brand of deadpan humour, and is illustrated in scrap-book style with the author' s own quirky line drawings. This is a poetry book like other!
- Author BiographyJOHN HEGLEY was born in north London and brought up in Luton. He now lives in Islington. His eight collections of adult verse have mostly been published by Methuen, and he has two children's books in print: My Dog is a Carrot, (2002, reissued 2007 Walker) and Monsieur Robinet, a dual-language storybook, pub Donut Press. He started out as a stand-up comedian/poet, performing his work on the festival and comedy circuit and he became something of a cult performer from the early 80s onwards. He has recently started to direct his writing and performances more towards children, but generally his shows will delight all ages. He plays the ukulele as part of his poetry performances. He is a Fellow of the English Association. John Hegley lives in north London.
