Poet and anthologist Roger Stevens has put together a book of brand new poems to make you squeam, squirm and laugh out loud. These poems about pants (and other things besides) are grouped under five themed chapters - poems to make you laugh, to drive you mad, to make you sick , to scare you, and thoughtful/serious or sad poems - and are in a wide variety of genres and styles, from haiku and limericks, to sonnets and sestinas. And with a title containing the magic 'p' word, how can kids resist...?
Roger Stevens has put together various poetry anthologies, including The Monster That Ate the Universe (Macmillan). He runs the 'Poetry Zone' website for children and leads poetry workshops for schools.
