A collection of children's most requested poems by a Kurt Maschler award-winner. When Colin McNaughton says he's talking big, he means BIG. Meet monsters, dinosaurs, giants and many other larger-than-life characters in this hugely enjoyable selection of funny verse and pictures. I'm Talking Big! has been inspired by the many children's events that Colin has attended, and is made up of the poems his young audience ask to hear the most often. A humorous interview between Colin and a 'reader' at the end is also based on the most commonly asked questions he faces from his many fans. Daft and daring, this hilarious, madcap collection will delight all who read it.

"Colin McNaughton makes popular culture in front of your eyes." Michael Rosen, The Guardian; "The pictures work as well as the words... He can travel from limericks to lists, from puns to ballads, and all the time find the natural illustration." The Times; Invention and child-like rudery that can hardly fail to entertain." Children's Books of the Year
