A brilliantly funny collection of poems involving everyone's favourite anti-hero Dave Dirt, the extraordinary afternoon of a prawn and the mysterious tale of Zoe's earrings.Witty, touching and clever - this is a classic collection from the irreverent Kit Wright.
Kit Wright's father was a schoolmaster who loved reading and writing light-hearted verse. He encouraged Kit too and Kit began poetry from the age of six, continuing to do so ever since. Kit soon established himself as one of the most able poets for children around with collections such as Arthur's Father and Cat Among the Pigeons. TES said of him that "among children's writers he has perhaps the finest ear for poetry's rythms and cadences."
