A Poem

I’ve written a short poem to entertain, whist I await the photographs to share with you from World Book Day.

World Book Day

I had to dress my child,

As a character she had to go,

From a favourite book,

One that we both know.

She wanted to be a Gruffalo,

But I cannot sew,

So I suggested some staples,

And a lovely throw.

She didn’t fancy that,

So we had another think,

She wanted to be a princess,

In a dress, that was all pink.

I offered her the tablecloth,

With shiny glitter on,

She said that would not do,

And could we go to Amazon,

How about a belt?

And a pillowcase,

I’m sure there was a book,

Based on outer space?

Or even an old school tie,

Tucked inside your drawers,

You could be a cat,

If you walk on all fours.

What about a queen?

With a golden crown,

I think that I could do that,

With a dressing gown.

No more Mummy please,

I think I’ll dress myself,

I want to be inspiring,

Not sat there on the shelf.

I am very excited to be visiting a local school for World Book Day and talking about my book Will’s War. All I need to do now is come up with a costume! Come back and see the photos after March 1st!

Will’s War – Coming April 2018

Eleven year old Will never expected to find an air raid shelter at the bottom of his grandad’s garden, let alone be transported to WWII London where bombs fall from the sky like raindrops. Terrified he searches for a way back, but before he has a chance to figure out just where the time hole is he gets evacuated to the country. Getting home just got a whole lot harder.
