Once again I have failed to meet the Tuesday deadline with a poem, I'm trying to keep up posting every week and get a new book out, but in the meantime, I'd like to link you to a book I co-wrote with Peter Friend, a few years ago now, called The Great Weta Robbery. It's a great little book published by Gilt Edge for early readers. There's an audio version at the above link, and even better for teachers, there's an educator's guide here.
The blurb: When your after-school job is looking after weta the size of cats, it'd
be understandable if you thought that your life couldn't get any more
exciting or dangerous. But there is a darker secret lurking in the
laboratories of Krell Reserach and it's down to one boy – with his
sidekicks Snapper, Fluffy, Five-Legs and the other mega-weta – to get to
the bottom of it.
I hope you enjoy it (even though it's definitely not poetry!)
