 Totally Random Poems For Kids

This book contains an amazing collection of 101 poems written and illustrated by Darren McErlain.

Darren McErlain is a Primary Teacher, Journalist, Voice-over actor and Illustrator and has entertained audiences for more than 20 years.

This classic edition is ideal for the classroom or the bedroom bookshelf. These poems will make you think, smile and laugh – but not always in that order!

Ignore your location. If you are in a school library, glossy bookstore, on the bus or in the bathroom, this book gives you permission to snigger, chuckle, snort or cry.

Does your bookshelf need a new addition? This ultimate poetry experience is like reading song lyrics without the music, or enjoying short stories with special literary effects. It gives you a quick snapshot of life, or captures an experience worth bottling.

Have a sneak peek inside. Taste test a poem and feast on the others later. Absorbing this book in moderation can nourish your poetic digestion. Don’t be alarmed. It can also calm the poetic verses already doing loops and laps in your head.

WARNING: Don’t lend your special copy to anyone!  Buy your friends and family a copy too
