HILARIOUS LIMERICK POEMS to enjoy and write! For seriously smart & silly kids aged 7 – 13.

A Tyrannosaurus called Trevor
Read books and learned how to be clever.
Everyone knew his name
When he quickly became
The first T-Rex in Outer Space EVER!

funnier than a fossil-hunter’s funnybone!!!
– Stan Cullimore, children’s author & ex-popstar (The Housemartins)

Plesiosaur twins Dan and Dana
Dived under and saw a piranha!
They splashed quickly away
But Dan said, ‘It’s okay —
I think it was just a banana!’

‘David Bedford is encouraging children to play with words and ideas, to enjoy and be creative with language.’
– Dr Chloë Marshall, Professor of Psychology, Language and Education, UCL Institute of Education, University College London

On his birthday a Triceratops
Took his money to spend at the shops.
He bought two long hats
Five black-and-white cats
And a bagful of green lollipops!

Written by a worldwide best-selling children’s author and writing coach.
