The Language of Cat

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Review

Making the ordinary seem extraordinary is a gift - one which characterises the poetry of Rachel Rooney.

In her first published collection for children (she has contributed to anthologies for a number of years), she explores everyday events and makes them feel fresh and authentic.

Suffused with gentle humour and a perceptive wit, the poems offer an eclectic mix of original wordplay, empathy for the experience of childhood and fantastic flights of imagination.

A wonderful testament to the scope and versatility of language which youngsters will enjoy reading and which is likely to inspire them to be creative in their own poetic endeavours.
