I’m Just No Good At Rhyming And Other Nonsense For Mischievous Kids And Immature Grown-ups

£14.99

This is one of the most outstanding poetry books I’ve read. Chris Harris has created a superb collection of works including every type of poem, from rhyming narrative, to nonsense, illustrative, to shape poems,  to poems to be recited or shared. Each poem is meaningful. You can sense the sweat on the poet’s brow, his determination that every word should matter.

Award-winning illustrator Lane Smith has the measure of the poet; his sepia toned comic shapes endorse the words brilliantly, adding weight to the meaning, fun, form and intelligence.

I love the serial poems that pepper the book and the comparisons. Nothing is ever left undone, so that at times, it’s like reading an internal conversation.

This is a magnificent poetry book, about which any child who loves words and is building up a commitment to and interest in language and writing should know. We recommend ‘I’m Just No Good at Rhyming’ to readers aged from 7 years. As the title says, it is ideal for adults too.
