This lively collection of poems should raise a giggle and a smile from any child with a sense of fun. Poets as such Hilaire Belloc and Philip Larkin, Wendy Cope and Spike Milligan ponder themes including families, creatures, learning and food, with some cautionary advice thrown in for good measure.
