by John Foster
A collection of poems about pets that range from hamsters with headaches to fish with the flu and from whales in the bath to a little plastic cyber pet, here are pets pleasant, potty, and plain peculiar. This work is suitable for introducing children to poetry.
Here is a wonderful collection of poems about every kind of pet you can think of, with zany full-colour illustrations by the inimitable Korky Paul. From hamsters with headaches to fish with the flu and from whales in the bath to a little plastic cyber pet, here are pets pleasant, potty, and plain peculiar! Children will love the humour that runs throughout, and the book is a great introduction to poetry, whether at home or at school. Pet Poems is one of a best-selling series of poetry titles by John Foster and Korky Paul.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
brimful of vitality, fun and totally anarchic illustrations - a perfect marriage of words and pictures. John Foster is expert at choosing just the kind of poem to appeal to the subversive side of every child and Korky Paul's illustrations take each verse even further towards total madness. If this combination of verse and illustration doesn't make you laugh out loud then you must have missed out on the sense of humour gene. Guardian Education
