DEAD FUNNY is one of four sparkling new collections of nonsense poems which mark the return of Collins Children’s Books to poetry publishing. John Foster is a well-known poet and teacher. His book, Wham Bang Orangutan is hugely popular (published OUP).
New and existing material has been brought together to provide this morbidly humorous collection. Well-known poets include Roger McGough, Paul Cookson, Eric Finney and John Foster himself.
Susan avoided the cracks with care
And always trod upon the square;
An unwise move, she was to discover –
She stepped on a manhole without a cover.

Completely Crazy Poems
No one can fail to dip into this book and come away without a cheeky smirk on their face. One to chase away the winter blues.
Fantastic stuff to introduce youngsters to poetry before they go all silly and wander like clouds.
A Century of Children’s Poems
It is a compelling mix of all genres and treatments, and readers are sure to be enriched whether they dip in and out of the book or progress through it in a structured way. Enticing and rewarding, this collection gives a real insight into the superb variety of poems on the 20th century. Bookseller
