Poetry Box is about to wake up



our snoozing cats are waiting for me to wake up Poetry Box!!



Dear young poetry fans


Goodness me summer is almost at end and my blog is still snoozing

which means I have been hard at work on my own writing and books.


My exciting news is my new collection of children’s poems will be out in July

with my own drawings. And I even did a painting for the cover.


Groovy Fish and other poems   Ahoy! Press   July 2019


I used the titles I collected on my hot spot tour of NZ for poems – so finally you will get to see what I wrote!


Meanwhile I am planning what to do on my blog this year.

What would you like to see?

I want to find ways to involve schools and classes as well as individual children who are passionate about poetry.


Teachers, parents, school librarians, children: Write me a letter and tell me what you want to see:


poetry challenges

new poems by me

interviews with authors

reviews of NZ children’s books

reviews of poetry books from anywhere in the world

reviews of favourite poetry books

children doing reviews and interviews

favourite poems by other poets (I need to get permission so NZ is easier)

classes that do a cool poetry exercise

schools that do a cool poetry project

letters to children’s authors by children

interviews with school librarians

your ideas
