'Are you interested in conserving our natural resources? .... or satisfying your curiosity about natural phenomena? ..... or wondering how it was possible for a shark to have a pirate's leg growing out ofthe top of its head? .... or enjoying reading of conversations between animals? ... or heeding warnings about catching crabs? ... or going fishing? .... or watching fairies in the back garden? ... or nonsense poems about imaginary creatures?........... then this book is for you!


Whatever your interests, it is to be hoped that you have been lured to dip in, become immersed, firmly hooked, and well and truly caught, by reading or listening to this illustrated book of poems, which is available in paperback, hard cover or e-book editions.

James Tweddle is an 87-year-old ex-teacher. Though a long-time lover of poetry, until his 87th birthday he had never previously written poems of any kind, especially for children. Since turning 87, he has composed more than seventy poems for children, which seemed to come to mind quite easily without ‘too much beating about in the bush.’
Most of his poems are accompanied by coloured illustrations drawn by James himself. As he himself says, ‘In the midst of composing, my computer crashed. What a tragedy, as I must be now about the worst hand-writer in Australia. Luckily, repairs were quickly made. Thank goodness for computers and clever technicians!’
