There's a Crocodile in the House Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Liz Million


Paul Cookson's staggeringly versatile range as a performance poet is fully displayed in this new collection.

Humour, danger, wonder, surprise are the elements underlying his work.

The collection contains some poems that need to be shouted and some that have to be whispered very quietly.

There are many interactive poems in which a whole class or group of children can participate. BEEP BEEP ! WHOOSH! A great one to do with a high pitched "Beep Beep" and an extended quieter "Whoosh!" Silver saucer shining brightFlashing beams and laser lightsBeep !

Beep Whoosh!Beep Beep! Whoosh! Nasty pilot, nasty crewComing down for me and youBeep !

Beep Whoosh!Beep Beep! Whoosh ...
