With tongue twisters, limericks, epitaphs, haiku, love songs, and wonderfully witty wordplay throughout, My Cat is in Love with the Goldfish is a refreshing new take on one of poetry's perennial themes.
Following the same successful formula of The Secret Life of Pants and Let's Recycle Grandad, My Cat is in Love with the Goldfish is a compilation of the loopiest love poems ever brought together in one collection. This is a truly original and engaging book of poems that kids will find impossible to resist. Forget the 'Owl and the Pussycat', here we have the skunk and the porcupine, the octopus and the rhinoceros, a whale that falls head over tail for a submarine, and much more besides.
