BRISTOL BOOK SHOP FUN

What a treat to host a crowd of young readers at Bristol’s Storysmith Bookshop on Saturday.

We had songs, riddles, stories and poems about night-time, sleep and dreams from my new book THE DREAM TRAIN.

And what’s more, after a reading of MONSTER! HUNGRY! PHONE! the children came up with this poem…

THE HUNGRY TUMMY

Here comes the monster

and he’s feeling very hungry.

It’s time for his lunch

and he wants to fill his tummy.

He wants a soft, banana-tasting, yellow, monster-sized banana!

He wants some cheesy-weezy, jelly-margherita pizza!

He wants a crunchy, crispy, crazy-cranola bacon sandwich!

Lovely musical language … and some word-inventing (cranola ?!?) too!
