By Brian Moses & Illustrated by Ed Boxall
A sparkling new collection from a leading children’s poet
Every day is an adventure in this brilliant, eagerly awaited collection from one of the UK’s best loved poets. Find cats, dogs and dragons, a rock’n’roll iguana and the Rescue Centre for Mythical Beasts. Take the night train to Transylvania, learn to fly or send a postcard from Pluto – but never take a selfie with a Komodo!
Such a great book full of poems that are sometimes catchy, sometimes scary but always fun.
A poem called Dragons, it just helps your imagination to roam beyond wherever you are.
When I met the dragon of vanity,
we gazed into his mirror.
When I met the dragon of discovery
we roamed the known world together.
When I met the dragon of imagination
we tiptoed in and out of each other’s dreams…’
