Industry Reviews
I loved all of the poems in this book, and I give it a whopping five out of five, because I cannot find a flaw in any way whatsoever. Anyone would find this book interesting, and whether you're nine or ninety, I guarantee that you will enjoy it. (reviewed by Grace D, child reviewer) -- Creative Kids Tales * Creative Kids Tales *
Beginning with an interesting and revealing introduction by Dianne Bates, this outstanding collection of Australian poems is a gem. -- Kids' Book Review * Kids' Book Review *
The book is small and the content well spread out-it is a great small book and I hope it is really successful. A great book for school libraries, teachers and kids of 7-14 years. -- Janet Croft Reviews * Janet Croft Reviews *
Funny, irreverent, happy, sad and poignant this collection of diverse poems would be a great addition to a school or home library. -- Reading Time * Reading Time *
I would recommend this anthology for children ages 7 to 10 who like all sorts of poems. REVIEWED BY MATILDA, 10, WA -- Alphabet Soup * Alphabet Soup *
They are varied enough to be read through at a sitting, individually satisfying enough to be picked out and savoured one, or three at a a time. * Magpies Magazine *
