A master craftsman and trusted wordsmith, he writes poems that I wish I'd written. -- Paul Cookson From a dinosaur spa to what's inside a shell, John Foster's poems will leave you enthralled, spellbound and begging for more -- hilarious wordplay, crazy cautionary tales and fun riddles from the master of rhyme. -- Angela Topping John Foster has great dexterity with wordplay. From reflections on the letter 'Z' to guidance on understanding 'Uncle Sam', this book is crammed with poems that turn and twist in ways that children will find intriguing. -- Brian Moses
