Zooming the Zoo
By John Dougherty
Illustrated by Tom Morgan-Jones
Suggesting this zoo hold a meeting on zoom
Was not sensible, wise or astute
For the sloths all appear to have frozen onscreen
And I think that the swan’s stuck on mute.
Read about slugs, dogs and bats – or ghosts, grandads and lions in love; discover a feisty Rapunzel and how to deal with bullies. Find a class teacher who runs the marathon, the talented, kind kids in Yellow Group - and learn the first rule of poetry – have fun!
This is a really exciting, varied collection from one of the UK’s most popular poets – a brilliant performer in schools and at festivals.
