I am a Poetato Summary

I am a Poetato: An A-Z of poems about people, pets and other creatures by John Hegley

This is a very funny, witty, zany collection for children, which will also appeal to the author' s adult fans. It has all the John Hegley comic hallmarks, including references to wearing glasses, Luton, and dogs (being superior to cats)!
The poems are arranged alphabetically by title, with family pets and other animals featuring strongly, from a mos-quito and ants, through wise camels, goldfish and guillemots to Toby the armadillo from Peru and not forgetting the unusual unicorn in school.
The book is packed with John' s unique brand of deadpan humour, and is illustrated in scrap-book style with the author' s own quirky line drawings. This is a poetry book like no other!

I am a Poetato Reviews

`An excellent collection of poems by John Hegley in which he creatively explores the traditional format of the alphabet book... The rhyme and rhythm of many of the poems make them great for reading aloud... This collection would be an excellent resource in the classroom for introducing students to different forms of poetry.'


`Children will love this any collection of poems featuring the unique voice of John Hegley - and I have a feeling adults will also enjoy I am a Poetato enormously too. . . This collection is laugh-out-loud funny, yet thought-provoking.' - July 2013
