Chicken on the Roof

Publisher: Otter-Barry Books

If you need an excuse to stay in bed, have ever wondered what goes on inside an electricity pylon, or had one of those days when everything seems to go wrong, Matt Goodfellow knows exactly how you feel!

The poems in this diverse collection also celebrate the joy to be found in libraries, rock pools and becoming an expert with a yo-yo, as well as the regret of losing something precious and the value of memories.

While many of the verses are humorous, some are more serious and thought-provoking. The range of subject matter and style will ensure readers are never bored and lively pen and ink illustrations add atmosphere and complement the text.

A lively, illustrated collection of entertaining poetry by a popular performance poet.
