Parents in Touch review I Will Not Wear Pink

July 15, 2016

"Plunkett has been invited to a party by Priscilla - but he must wear pink. Never, he says. Riotous rhyming text sees Plunkett in all sorts of pink... and finally he discovers that there is one shade of pink that is just perfect. Happily, Priscilla agrees with Plunkett and the two pigs fly happily away... all in pink! Just be yourself, and all will be perfect, is the theme of this entertaining story."

The Waggiest Tails

Poems written by dogs with help from Brian Moses and Roger Stevens

I wasn't The Dog that looks like its Owner

But there was one class where I came in first -
I'm The Dog with the Waggiest Tail.


From huskies, born to run, to those big bad bruisers, the security dogs. Meet Bruno, the smallest dog on the farm, and Charlie,
the dancing chihuahua. Find rescue dogs, helping dogs, yappy dogs, happy dogs - and the dog with the waggiest tail!


All written from the dogs' point of view, by internationally acclaimed poets Brian Moses and Roger Stevens, this funny and perceptive canine collection will be treasured by dog-lovers of all ages.

Five star review for The Waggiest Tails

Whether you are a dog lover or not, you will be delighted by these irrepressibly doggy voices, so ably supported by Brian Moses and Roger Stevens (both of whom have dog-owning and poetic credentials!). Writing in the first person (of course - this is a consistently doggy lens), these clever poets (sorry, dogs) have given us a wonderful array of canine verse. ..The strands of humour and tenderness that permeate this collection are beautifully complemented by Ed Boxall's endearing line drawings. Full colour wagging tailed dogs adorn the cover warmly inviting the child reader in to this delightful anthology. Barking mad... not a bit of it!

Parents in Touch review The Waggiest Tails

I love sharing poetry with children and they are going to love this collection. I know I do! You don't have to be a dog lover either, although the poems will obviously have a special appeal to all who love dogs, and who will relish in the way their foibles are so funnily exposed. All the poems are written from the dog perspective, giving them a real insight/ Meet dogs of every imaginable kind, from huskies, born to run, to those big bad bruisers, the security dogs. Meet Bruno, the smallest dog on the farm, and Charlie, the dancing chihuahua. Find rescue dogs, helping dogs, yappy dogs, happy dogs - and the dog with the waggiest tail! A brilliant collection with so much to enjoy and relish
