The Puffin Book of Utterly Brilliant Poetry

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Puffin

Each section begins with an interview with the poet so readers can learn about their lives and personalities.The interviewer, Brian Patten, is also one of the ten poets and he is interviewed by his cat Wiz.

The poems encompass subjects as varied as ghosts, school, bedtime, elephants and chocolate cake. The poets include Spike Milligan, John Agard, Allan Ahlberg, Benjamin Zephaniah and Jackie Kay.

Everyday situations such as dealing with a pimple or the coming of spring, compete for attention with nonsensical verses such as The Squirdle and Sky in the Pie!
