Things You Find in a Poet's Beard
A.F. Harrold

Ages: 7-11

Things You Find in a Poet's Beard is a collection of poems that have been shouted at children from schools to church halls, silly tales that have been illustrated joyously by Children's Laureate, Chris Riddell and bound into a book.

Perhaps you'll want to annoy your family by reading them out; perhaps you'll want to chuckle at them under the covers with a torch; perhaps you'll want to stare at the pictures drawn by Mr Chris Riddell or maybe you'll want to shout them aloud to capture the spirit of your poet, A.F. Harrold himself.
