9781852244088: Sheep Don't Go to School: Mad & Magical Children's Poetry

'Sheep Don't Go to School' contains a whole flock of mad and magical poems from Eastern Europe. There are silly rhymes, surreal tales and serious stories from strange places-all bleating with wordplay, riddling, and true magic. These weirdly wonderful poems have been shepherded into English from Albania, Belarus, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, and the former Yugoslavia. Aimed at children up to 12 or 13, this is a terrific way for young children to learn about and experience both poetry and the life of these ""exotic"" European countries.

About the Author:

Andrew Fusek Peters is a poet, children's author and didjeridu player who has also been a presenter and writer for BBC 1's Wham Bam Strawberry Jam. His family fled Prague during the Russian coup of 1948. This background has greatly influenced his books, which include The Barefoot Book of Strange and Spooky Stories, May the Angels Be With Us ('More than just a collection...unique' - Brian Patten), and The Weather's Getting Verse. He has done much work on Radio 4 and as a performer/writer in education. He is based in Shropshire.

Review:

'Fresh, original, funny and thoughtful...the year's most innovative poetry publication' - Anne Harvey, Guardian'This book should be in everyone's poetry collection...wonderful poetry, fresh views and new experiences...places with people who have dreams and a sense of humour rather than just names we hear on the news. Buy it!' - Helen Taylor, Books For Keeps
