Michael Rosen’s Big Book of Bad Things

Michael Rosen

Reviewed by Daniel Wood, 9

I must admit that I didn’t think I was a fan of poetry… until I read this collection! Michael Rosen’s poems don’t rhyme, but they sort of chatter along and tell little stories in such a funny way. The poems are all about ‘Bad Things’ that happen through a child’s eyes – I especially loved Car School where a car becomes head master of his school, dumps the old Head in a skip and introduces a new school song: “Brrrrrrrrm Brrrrrrrrrrrrm”! Think of this as a huge collection of very short funny stories for people in a hurry – it’s great!

    I like to read limericks and humourous poems!
