I am a Poetato

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Arranged in A to Z order, this quirky collection of funny, touching, fascinating and totally original poems from the man dubbed ‘the laureate of comedy’ has a lot to say about the animal world and showcases Hegley’s love of language and rhythm.

How many of us have contemplated the differences between dogs and deckchairs? Or thought about the consequences of giving a hamster its freedom? Or wondered how a queen bee might address her minions?
 
The poems in this collection aren’t just amusing and entertaining, they have a physicality (reflected in the ‘scrapbook style’ presentation) and depth of interest that will keep readers returning to them time and time again – and finding something new at each visit.
