Roger McGough, 'a trickster you can trust', has done more than most to breathe life into poetry. part of the top-selling Mersey Sound with Brian Patten and Adrian Henri, he also had hits with The Scaffold and club dates with Grimms, which led to more broadcasts, books and gigs than Chaucer. Here be gorillas and fruitbats, talking seals & jazz-loving jellyfish, Lily the Pink back from weightlifting, grandads and uncaring cats, texting and riddling, tiny poems for toddling tiddlers, the mysterious death of a lighthouse keeper and an impossible Whale in the Thames. Following his highly-acclaimed adaptation of Tartuffe at the Playhouse, Roger McGough returns with new collection of slapstick verses for 10-plus year olds and their elders and betters.
