About the book

Author of the award-winning The Letterbox Cat, Paula Green’s bright new poems have grown out of titles collected from her fans: the children who follow her online at Poetry Box and curl up inside the covers of her books. These poems dash and dart, whisper and purr … tell of tap-dancing fish, cheese-spaghetti dogs, annoying itches, thunder monkeys and midnight moons. In Paula’s world skies are pumpkins, lions live in kennels and her own wild drawings dance across the page.
