Industry Reviews
"If you read collections of poems by Adrian Mitchell, Roger McGough, Jackie Kay, John Agard, Brian Patten, Kit Wright, Carol Ann Duffy, Steve Turner, Grace Nichols and Benjamin Zephaniah, you'll probably be well set up." -- Michael Rosen * The Times *
"If you like your poetry to make you laugh, Steve Turner's your man." * Daily Telegraph *
"I handed it to my ten-year old, who's dyslexic and not especially given to reading poetry aloud. He brought the poems to fluent, humorous life, full of expression, at a first reading, clearly getting as much pleasure out of his performance as he gave. It's not difficult to see why Turner's first collection, 'The Day I Fell Down the Toilet', was so successful." -- Sara O-Reilly * Time Out *
"Uncovers a seam of humour to which children and adults can relate but which also has more enduring characteristics such as sensitivity and compassion." * Oxford Times *
"One of the most original and child-friendly voices to emerge in the last few years." * Sunday Telegraph *
