Vampires, witches, fairies, wizards and mermaids -meet them all here
in Angela Topping's poems. She shares her wicked sense of humour
about school and celebrates festivals, families and nature in this
delightful collection of much anthologised poems now brought together for the first time. These poems have been enjoyed by children of all ages the length and breadth of the country in a variety of venues including schools, libraries and festivals. Enter Topping's zany world of magic and mystery, where teenage wizards wear doc martens and your auntie is a vampire. You will never want to leave.
Excerpt
Fears


Iím not scared of spiders.
Iím happy to handle a worm.
Itís not quite true what Liam says
Iím not the sort to squirm.

I didnít cry out ĎHelp meí
When a moth came in the house.
Donít believe what Liam says
about when I saw the mouse.

Iím not keen on daddy-long-legs
But I donít make a fuss.
I donít know why Liam thinks
his mum is such a wuss.

Heís got a pet tarantula
and scorpions in a box,
but I can cope with worse things-
like the smell of Liamís socks.

So donít believe a word of it
Itís just a pack of lies
I am the greatest advocate
of everything that flies.

Liam, Help! Your lizardís loose again
Itís sitting on the cooker and I canít cook the tea!
Come on Liam for goodness sake
Take the horrid thing away from me!
