About this title


When de July sun hot like fire, Den I have just one desire, To run down to de shop an' buy a Kisko pop! A brilliant new collection from this wonderful performance poet. Her poetry is beautifully crafted yet full of energy and fun, and her subjects range from global pollution to problems with math homework, and to the sad demise of pet frogs (he croaked of course). Her mixed-use of standard English and dialect is a delight to read and hear. Children love reading and listening to her work!
