Eagerly awaited new collection from a poet with a fast-growing fanbase.

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.

About the Author

Rachel Rooney trained as a special needs teacher and currently works with children with autism. She also teaches poetry workshops for West Sussex's Gifted and Talented Programme, and leads workshops in schools as a visiting poet. She has been shortlisted for the Belmont Poetry Prize and 60 of her poems have been published in children's poetry anthologies. The Language of Cat was her first book of collected poems.

Industry Reviews

'Lovely. A good follow up to the delightful, award-winning Language of Cat, this book features poems short and long, sometimes rhyming, sometimes not. I can't find a poem I don't like in here. Some of them are light hearted, but some are quite serious; most will appeal to adults as well as children.'


"This book is like opening a box of joy and laughter - we all love it."
