Her love for poetry writing began at high school, where her English teacher named her ‘his little poetess’. She has entered, and won, a few poetry competitions over the years, and shared her poetry with friends and family, but now wants to spend more of her free time writing.

    Wow what a wonderful book! I bought it for my granddaughter as a gift and she absolutely loved it! Very well written and beautifully illustrated. We cannot wait for the next book!

  • Chris Deeson

    Ive read it and loved it (although im not in the target age range). Loved the non-formulaic structure too, so it’s not like every other children’s book while still keeping all of the best qualities of fun, rhyme and a great narrative.

  • Carol and Paul Robinson

    We purchased this beautifully illustrated book for our granddaughter as a Christmas Present. She is now old enough to read books like this, all on her own and she loved it. The story line was strong enough to hold her and the poetic language made it easy to read.

  • Emily

    This is a wonderfully nostalgic work of brilliance that reminded me of stories and poems I was read when I was younger and I loved it! The vibrancy and whimsy of the story is enough to make anyone smile, and the hard work and imagination of the author really shone through and made it all the more enjoyable. Highly recommend :)

  • Rachel Sloane

    Congratulations to Felixstowe poet Dawn Jackson on her first book, aimed at 6-8 year olds ‘Most Unusual Bikes’. It tells of an adventurous mother who has a sailing bike that takes her to a desert island …and then back to Felixstowe Port. Meanwhile father flies to the moon only to discover the cheese there makes him sneeze. There are lovely illustrations to go with the poem, a great new word to learn (Crustaceous cheese) and it’s just the right length for a quick bedtime story! (Austin Macauley Publishers Ltd )
