The Flying Spring Onion by Matthew Sweeney
In this poet's world, nothing is quite what you have been led to expect. Money does grow on trees, even fishbones can dream, and there is a Mr Bluejack who sticks his head in a freezer when it gets too hot. With monkeys in the spare bedroom and a butterfly-eating poodle in the bath, even everyday family life begins to look a bit odd. This book of poems for children is designed to help the reader explore the world of imagination and to open a world of possibilities.
