Author Bio

WES MAGEE was born in Scotland, and worked as a teacher and head-teacher until he became a full-time writer twenty years ago. He has published 100 books for children, including poetry, picture books and storybooks. He regularly visits schools, libraries and festivals across the UK and abroad, performing his "poetry show". He also runs training days for teachers, talks at educational conferences and runs writing workshops. His best-known books are The Very Best of Wes Magee, which won the Children's Poetry Bookshelf Award, The Boneyard Rap and The Witch's Brew. He lives in Yorkshire.

Tracey Tucker lives in a small fishing village by the sea. How she came to be there is a long
and winding tale, but it's the perfect spot for an artist and she feels inspired living there. It's like living in one of the books that she illustrates.

Review Quotes

"The main messages children will pick up here are: that language is fun; and that if you give full rein to your imagination, anything can happen ...
If like me, you believe that nursery rhymes should form the bedrock upon which a child can build a love of poetry, then this beautifully produced book may be of interest." * Red Reading Hub *
