'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.

Andrew Fusek Peters is a poet, children's author and didjeridu player who has also been a presenter and writer for BBCa┬ ┬ 1's Wham Bam Strawberry Jam. His family fled Prague during the Russian coup of 1948.

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
