Things You Find In A Poet's Beard

This collection is full of quite silly, funny, peculiar poems. A few are a bit more serious. Several require deep breaths and most of them ask you to stand up if you read them out loud.

Illustrated wonderfully inside and outside by renowned illustrator extraordinaire Chris Riddell.

Printed using Dyslexie font, specially designed to be easier to read for people with dyslexia.

Only £10 for a copy signed by A.F. Harrold. including free UK postage and packing
(for orders outside the UK please e-mail me first to find out postage)

Look, here I am saying words while you look at my face. (Do not press 'play' on them all at once unless you want an aural nightmare.)


The following videos were filmed by the brilliant Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) and can also be found their website here.

This poem is from Things You Find In A Poet's Beard, but isn't illustrated in there. Chris did these pictures on a train, in his notebook, on the way to a reading we were doing together...

Isn't he amazing?
