Laugh and learn with The Big Bamboo - the portly panda bear who fancies himself as President!

The Big Bamboo

A collection of poems where the humour is set at different levels making them suitable for those aged 5 to 500 or older! There is also a subtle educational element woven into the words - difficult or obscure words for instance are typed in blue and a small mouse, hidden on the page will offer an explanation.

The Big Bamboo books are written specifically fpr both children and adults. The humour works at different levels so the whole family can enjoy them. Illustrated by the author,the poems will make you laugh out loud and also offer you refreshing, new ways to learn about the world.      


Excerpt

NAME CALLING!

At school, they taught me Names were NOUNS
Like Angela Smith and Sally-Ann Downes;
A VERB, they said, is a word we do,
Like run and walk and seek and view.

Americans confuse their words
And mix their Nouns up with their Verbs;
Their children aren’t called NOUNS like Barry,
But VERBS, like Chuck, and Chip and Carrie!

The English aren’t immune from blame
They have their failings, just the same;
Their children’s names are odder still,
They call them questions like Watt! and Will!

Italians end their names in ‘O’
They say it helps their language flow;
And Moors from Mecca to far off Bali
Call ALL of their kids either Ali or Ali!

The Africans repeat their names
They call it rhythm not childish games;
The best example I can give you? -
The delightful Bishop Tu-tu!

So Names aren’t NOUNS and VERBS don’t Do -
Just jargon, flawed, like me and you;
And what we try to say to who,
Is never quite what we meant it to.
