This is a wonderful poem for children to perform, with lots of speaking parts for the children. Written in iambic heptameter, with words that dance across the page, and excellent rhyming, it is a poem that will be easy for children to learn. It is also a funny poem which I know that children love.


The voice recording, which I've made, is fun for children to listen to, even if it is just to break up hard study that has been done during the course of the day. I do so believe that children love to listen to a poem for fun, and as a break during their day, that, at the request of the children for whom I wrote my poems, I've added many voice recordings so that children can go themselves to my perfectly safe website and just listen and enjoy hearing the poems they like over and over again.

This is a wonderful poem for performance with many speaking parts.


Oh do get your children to do some funny pictures to go with this poem, and any particularly good ones you can always send to me to put with the poem on my website.

I do hope your children enjoy my work, and teachers, you also of course.
