Dear Ugly Sisters

and other poems

By Laura Mucha

Illustrated by Tania Rex

A debut collection that fizzes with originality and wit.

Original, dazzling and unconventional, here is a first solo collection from an outstanding new voice in children’s poetry. Rich in surprises, with many shape- and puzzle-poems, its themes include science, nature and space. Go on a night flight, have a monster’s lunch, immerse yourself in birdsong. Shout out an Apatosaurus rap before checking out Alexander Fleming’s petri dish. Warm humour and deeper notes of insight and empathy mingle in a wide range of poetic styles and forms, making a spectacular debut from a poet to watch.
