If you would like to read poems about two-headed aliens, dogs with no noses, or an eighty-three year old roller-blading granny, then this book of poems is for you. Children are often reluctant to read poetry but, presented with this hilarious, quirky selection, they should soon change their minds.

Worms Can’t Fly by Aislinn & Larry O’Loughlin

Mum, make her give my roller-blades back
She’s had them most of the day
and tell her to grow up and act her age –
after all, Granny is eighty-three.
