"With Dougherty's inventive use of language, and with each poem different enough to keep a young reader interested, there is plenty here to capture a child's imagination. And Tom Morgan-Jones' cartoon-like illustrations are fun too."
"Good on you, John Dougherty. If you want to turn children on to poetry, then grab a copy of this and share it; buy a copy or more and give it; which ever – JUST DO IT!"
