Very Loud Poems      

These four story-poems are another strong and sturdy branch on the literacy tree. All are highly entertaining, in full colour, printed in an easy-to-hold A5 format, and have pictures that add visual delight.

This is a tongue-twisting poem written for readers who love their poems to be vivid and LOUD!

It is for all ages, from little kids through to grownups; school classrooms through to home libraries.

The highly descriptive words and phrases paint a strongly pictorial picture, with the illustrations contributing another colourful element in this lively tale.


Once upon a time there were three little pigs,
Handsome and plump but not very big.

And so begins this bouncy version of the much-loved story told here in rap-like rhyme.

Actor warm-ups and movement activities are included at the back of the book, along with a song written to celebrate the happy outcome of this rollicking tale.



I'd like to be the captain of a great big ship
And give all my passengers a lovely trip ...

This story poem takes readers on a cruise as seen from the Captain's point of view.

Told in snappy rhyming couplets, the reader travels to places well beyond the classroom and into big wide happy world of an ocean voyage.

A nautical glossary is included as a general-knowledge booster.


This poem is a vivid account of the sounds and sights in a short but dramatic summer storm, written in such a way that reassures young readers who may be scared of a storm. The drama is taken from an appreciation of nature angle rather than fear.

Sound effect words ending in 'ing' are a vocabulary-enlarging feature.

The beautiful illustrations have every chance of inspiring budding artists to draw their own versions of the weather.



A perfect partnership of words and the imagination, this fully illustrated book has over thirty brand new limericks to entertain and amuse both readers and listeners.

A woman called Alice McBean,
Decided to visit the Queen.
    When she came to the palace
    They said ...

Being polite and well-mannered, the characters within these pages are perfectly at ease in homes, schools, waiting rooms and libraries or anywhere where words are loved.

P.S. Some limericks are tongue-tangling tongue-twisters. There is also one for budding ventriloquists where the lips do not touch - but which one is it?
