Over to You!

Over to You!


A brand new collection for children from beloved poet, writer and broadcaster - Roger McGough

Just when you are ready to write your first poem, along come the words and cause mayhem! 'Poems can be like that sometimes,' says Roger McGough.
Here Roger's witty poems take you from school and home to places far and wide, and back again just in time to finish the poem you first started.


  • Roger McGough is a true original and more than one generation would be much the poorer without him
