Things You Find in a Poet's Beard by A.F. Harrold
Things You Find in a Poet’s Beard is a collection of poems that have been shouted at children from schools to church halls. They are a curation of silly tales that have been illustrated and bound into a book. Perhaps you’ll want to annoy your family by reading them out; perhaps you’ll want to chuckle at them under the covers with a torch; perhaps you’ll want to stare at the drawings drawn by Mr Chris Riddell or maybe you’ll want to shout them aloud to capture the spirit of A.F. Harrold himself.
A.F. Harrold is an English poet and performer who
writes for both children and adults. His many volumes of poetry are published by Two Rivers Press and Burning Eye Books. His children’s books, including the very funny Fizzlebert Stump series (illustrated by Sarah Horne) and the slightly scary novel The Imaginary (illustrated by Emily Gravett) are published by Bloomsbury.
