There is a contagious energy sparkling throughout this new collection of children's poetry from Carol Ann Duffy, whether she is heralding heroes of rock 'n' roll or Henrietta the Eighth, discovering the husband of the Loch Ness monster, or recounting the fate of a girl who falls into a cavernous jam jar. With secrets and spells, songs of unrequited love, confessions and pleas, she envelopes them all in an irresistible dance, a rock 'n' roll that is entirely her own and which no child deserves to be without.
