Where Zebras Go

by Sue Hardy-Dawson

Ref: 2842

A debut solo collection by a Yorkshire-born poet and artist. Shortlisted for the 2018 CLPE Poetry Award (Centre for Literacy in Primary Education). Hardy-Dawson leaps across topics, voices and poetic forms, including wonderful shape poems: 'How To Score A Penalty' is written as an 'S' and then drawn out into a triumphant 'SHOOT!'; 'Making Tigers' uses different fonts and then stretches and squeezes the text to paint a tiger's face. Fairy tales are deliciously reworked- the frog princess, one ugly sister and a mermaid all finally get their turn in the spotlight. Age 8-12, Paperback 95pp
