My first Kindle book of funny poetry for children (fully illustrated in colour)is launching on Amazon Kindle on the 28th Feb 2015. 40 poems about childhood (often my own!) Each poem is accompanied by one of my illustrations to make you laugh even more! Follow my blog and illustration facebook page which have links on my website, www.markbardsleyillustration.co.uk
Poetry is great fun to write and to read aloud, especially when it makes you laugh (its World read aloud day on the the 4th march by the way!) I hope my work will inspire children and parents to love poetry, read aloud to each other more and maybe even write their own!
