Werewolf Club Rules by Joseph Coelho (Children's, Non-fiction, Poetry, 5 years +, 8/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

Grrr! Or should it be howling?
 August 2014, Frances Lincoln Children's Books, 96 pages, Paperback, Review copy

Summary from Frances Lincoln
Do not talk about Werewolf Club!
You can howl about it
But never talk.
Do not walk to Werewolf Club!
You can bound to it in moonlight
But never walk.
Find out the mysterious rules of Werewolf Club, how to look like a rainbow, what happens when puppies fall in love – and how to fold up your gran! This is an exciting debut poetry collection from a young poet who is already performing his work successfully at venues across the UK.

Nayu's thoughts  
Thanks to Frances Lincoln & a few other children's publishers, poetry features in my life every few months now. I didn't enjoy all the poems in this Werewolf and other creatures themed read, but I thought the opening hamster poem was brilliant! It helps in some respects that I've owned a hamster in the past and think they are rather cute, but you don't need my experience to appreciate humour, as other poems in this compiilation prove. 

Suggested read
Some other poetry books include I'm A Little Alien by James Carter (Children's, Non-fiction, poetry, 9/10E)
