Description

 Magic    slips
between    the
    cracks    in
    real    life.
    One    day
    you    will
    step      on
           it.    
 

A monster’s lunch, a wolf boy, Monday mornings, monkeys, headlice, Christmas, making friends, goldfish – and lots more. Full of jokes, surprises and puzzles, but also sensitive and thought-provoking, this is a spellbinding new collection from the winner of the CLPE Poetry Award.

The author

RACHEL ROONEY trained and works as a special needs teacher, alongside visits to schools for poetry readings and workshops. Her debut collection of poems for older children The Language of Cat was the 2011 Poetry Book Society children's choice. It also won the 2012 CLPE Award and was long listed for the Carnegie Medal. Her second collection of poems, for junior aged children My Life as a Goldfish came out in October 2014.

Rachel Rooney's poetry collection for children is a well-crafted, stimulating and unpatronising box of delights, always accessible and constantly inventive.'
Carol Ann Duffy
