About this title
Full of crazy poems which will make you laugh out loud. You may see yourself in them, or they may remind you of your children or grandchildren. In this follow-up to "A Small Book of Kick-Arse Poetry" Lissa Judd again focuses on the 12-15 tear-old who is reading-averse, but she succeeds in producing a book with wide appeal. The Kick-Arse Poetry books strive to entice those with poor reading skills who flounder at the edge of education systems: those who may have learned that reading is an onerous task with few rewards. These books attempt to engage the disengaged. Underpinning the wacky verse is a deliberate strategy to improve vocabulary and enhance self-esteem. They champion the average and the ordinary, and uplift the weary and downtrodden. A glossary has been included in this book - a breath of fresh air that blows away dull dictionary pages and replaces them with definitions and examples that are as hilarious as the poetry.About the Author:
Lissa Judd is a dermatologist and occupational medicine specialist with a degree in neurophysiology. But her credentials for writing her kick-arse poetry books are that she is a mum, determined to foster literacy, learning and self-esteem in those children who flounder at the edges of education systems.
