Karen King's humble opinion
8/10 You are working hard. Well done.
What's it about?
Lots of wacky poems that are fun to read. Poetry wasn't like this when I was at school!
What happens?
Read all about the dog who is a carrot, Max the dog with a smelly problem, Jean the computer addict who forgot how to speak and learn what a poem is not. Lots of fun, sparkling wit and funny pictures in this original collection.
Is it easy to read?
Yes. Some amusing sketches too.
Anything else?
According to the back flap of his book, John Hegley has worked with two theatre companies and is now a popular stand-up comedian, poet, singer, songwriter and glasses wearer.
Who says so?
This review by Karen King.
The publisher reckons...
A delightful melange of quirky poems by one of this country's most popular poets. my doggie don't wear glasses; so they're lying when they say; a dog looks like its owner; aren't they; John Hegley's doggie may not wear glasses, but then she is a carrot. Enter this celebrated poet's weird, witty and bespectacled world and meet Grandma with her filthy glasses, the organic leek who has learned how to speak, the octopus who gets a nasty shocktopus, the man who drew his cornflakes and a whole cast of other interesting characters. Surprising, serious, and sometimes just plain surprising, this is a collection of poems even your dog might like. Unless, of course, your dog is a carrot too.
