PUBLISHER, PUBLISHER, WHEREFORE ART THOU PUBLISHER (OF FUN VERSE FOR KIDS)

Following the first hilarious (my blog, my word!) collections of funny poems for kids (of all ages), collection three is ticking along nicely.



"Fun With Words, Fun With Rhyme" manuscript is current at 80 poems on 64 pages.  The aim is to get to 100 pages and well over 100 poems.

I will self-publish the book but I would love it to be taken up by a mainstream publisher - alas, with all the hurdles associated with agents and publishers, a tough challenge. (And yes, I have worn out my copy of Writer's & Artists Yearbook and almost hammered a keyboard to death!)

But never give up!

This collection is intended to be read aloud to enthusiastic and interactive young audiences.  It is about fun but also about nurturing young creative minds and a lifelong love of books, bookshops and libraries.

Lofty, but sincere.

These are the titles of the poems so far:
