New edition of a critically acclaimed collection which has been unavailable for several years.
"I nibbled a mother, But wanting something new I boiled a bit of Granny And tried some Uncle-stew. I did not eat the baby, That was out of the question. (And anyway they wriggle And cause indigestion.) Ever joined a Giant's family dinner, kept a pet wig, thawed a frozen frog or snaffled a giraffe? Thawing Frozen Frogs is a brilliantly inventive collection from one of the UK's top performance poets, including a wide range of poems that showcase Brian Patten's wit, slapstick humour, wisdom and sensitivity - and his poetry's huge appeal to children of all ages. Perfect for reading at school or at home, out loud or by yourself. Illustrated with Chris Riddell's funny and illuminating line drawings.
'A poetry collection that really does offer something for everyone.' Booktrust 'A must-have collection and contains poems about familiar and fantastical situations that can be shared or quietly absorbed.' Carousel
