Six lively poems for fans of Nick Sharratt! Vikings, a mermaid, tartan animals, a naughty vampire bat, the queen and a pirate all have their own poems in this collection!
The illustrations are everything you would expect; bright, bold and striking, they bring Nick’s characters to life and add to the humour of the verse- look at the Vikings’ horns as they go home from the supermarket! Perfect for younger children, the poems are light, bouncy and rhyming.
My favourite is ‘The Mermaid and the Shoe’. I can see children being inspired by his artistic style to create their own illustrations to go with their ideas about what the mermaid might keep in her shoe!
