"The tiger growls, its eyes ablaze,

but we too have our tiger ways,

we too can pad through the dark wood

of the cosmic neighbourhood."

Leap with hares, call out to the sun, run with the wind, pull silly faces with monkeys, watch out for the bear in the bathroom and meet a burping princess

A fantastic new collection for younger children from a prize-winning poet. These poems are perfect for curious young minds, ready for adventures.
