The Tea Swigging Pirate Jones (extended narrative poem)

(0)
"This is the story of the fierce Captain Jones, And his pirate ship with the skull and cross bones. With a patch on one eye and a hook for a hand, He sailed the oceans looking for land. If you just spoke his name, people trembled with fear, They ran and they hid when he was near. His ship had huge sails (and being old, had no motor), It was dirty and smelly and he called it ‘The Floater’." Sure to be a modern classic; 'The Tea Swigging Pirate Jones' follows Captain Jones and his crew as they hunt for treasure in a rhyming adventure. In a journey which takes them through caves and caverns with dragons and magic, this is sure to be as popular with teachers as it is for children! A Powerpoint collection of activities relating to the text is also included.

Doctor Glum: The Miserable Menace with a Magical Drum (Narrative Poem)

(0)
A narrative poem following the nasty Dr Glum as he uses his magical drum to make others unhappy - but will he learn his lesson? This is the story of old Doctor Glum And the magical instrument he taps with his thumb. He’s fat and old with a temper that’s bad, And wears a red army tunic that belonged to his dad. On his head is the hat from an old marching band, Which is covered in dirt and was bought second hand. Bits of spaghetti and old food dangled - From his white beard that was scruffy and tangled. Strapped around his neck (which is as fat as a plum), Is a big red and white marching band drum… But the power the drum holds is something quite great; It’s a shame that the man with the drum’s filled with hate!
