This book is for pre-order only. Publication date 2017-08-01.

From riddles, clerihews, and rhyming couplets, to fairytales, Christmas angels, and magnesium... With poems to curl up with, poems for bedtime, and poems just crying out for audience participation, Blast Off! is a cheeky, curious, and lyrical collection for children.

Cathy Benson's playful illustrations bring Blast Off! to life for younger readers, whilst for slightly older readers, there are familiar fairytales that pose troubling perspectives, and a gentle, yet haunting articulation of the adult world: I see them, hundreds of them in boats / like the one we went fishing on, / their faces like my kid brother's / the day he fell into the pond ('Six O'Clock News').

Blast off on an exciting journey into space, the past, fairytales with a difference, under your bed, and, above all, into the imagination.

Ten, nine, eight...
