Bright Bursts of Colour
Publisher: Bloomsbury Education
A brilliant, prize-winning collection of poems by Matt Goodfellow which is funny, engaging and touching in turns.
What if cats had flavoured fur or if you swallowed the sun? What if you were a special kind of badger or if you found a map to the stars? And what if your home was split during the week: one half at Mum's, the other half at Dad's?
