Published by Wolfhound Press, 1994

A total of forty-seven poems make up this collection of poetry for children, described at the time of publishing by the Evening Press as “one of the best Irish collections of children’s verse in a long time.”

Skyscraper Ted and Other Zany Verse by Margot Bosonnet

While poems like “Mr. Potts goes Bananas”, proclaiming the merits of wearing bananas on your head, or “Dangerous Waters”, telling of the perils of unwanted baths, will strike a chord with young children, other poems in the collection may need a little adult explanation.

The wide range of material covered will introduce children to playing with words and the idea of fun through poetry. Comic black and white drawings accompany almost every poem.
