Moon Juice: Poems for Children

Publisher: The Emma Press

Review

Skig is meant to be a warrior (but is really more of a worrier). There’s a giddy comet, which skids across the sky with its tail on fire. Put a marvellous new machine in your pocket, which promises to solve all of your life s problems.

Kate Wakeling's first book of poems for children is full of curious characters and strange situations. The poems she writes are always musical, sometimes wistful, and full of wonder at the weirdness of the world.

Winner of the CLiPPA Award 2017 for children's poetry.
