By West, Colin
Colin West, the master of comic verse, has written and illustrated his funniest collection yet: Never Nudge a Budgie. The book is divided into seven sections and contains a hundred poems of different kinds - limericks, nonsense, tongue twisters, shape poems and rhymes. They are o...n a surprising and entertaining range of subjects, from the ogre doing yoga in a toga and the hedgehog's valentine to whether or not to be a bee. Some are old, some new; all are infused with Colin's wit and his quirky view of the world. And each poem is accompanied by a wonderful witty picture by the poet himself - don't miss his portrayal of the Blunderblat or of Betty eating spaghetti!Read more
Colin published his first collection of nonsense verse in 1975, shortly after graduating from The Royal College of Art, and since then has written over 60 children's books. His talent for off-message, anarchic laughter has brought him many fans, including celebrated American poet Ken Nesbitt, who calls him a master of the art of humorous poetry for children. Colin lives in Battle, East Sussex. Visit his website at www.colinwest.com.
