David A. Ballard draws inspiration from his own experiences and that of his children and grandchildren, his nieces and nephews, in his first collection of lyrical poems for children of all ages.
There are belly laughs including a roller skating grandma, and a mischievous elephant, and a boy with a musical talent for playing his bum, and a mouse that flies to the moon, and a bookworm called Bertie – and don’t forget Giggling Gertie!
Enjoy reflective poems about the simple things in life, from having fun at the beach and the treasures you can discover in the attic, to the joy of yo-yos, kites and beautiful sunsets.
We hope you enjoy this collection of personal poems to make you smile and think from a talented new poet and song writer.
