Stars With Flaming Tails
By Valerie Bloom
Illustrated by Ken Wilson-Max
Poems to make you laugh, get you thinking and fill you with wonder - from one of the best-loved poets writing today.
I travelled once around the world
On stars with flaming tails,
And touched the colours of my dreams
Along some silver trails.
Look out for best friends, pancakes, and Grandad singing; discover a river dolphin, a poison dart frog and the most dangerous animal in the world; imagine a talking nose, meet the Zimbats of Zingley Dell and find the colour of your dreams.
