A short but sweet review of Pocketful in Reading Time…

Reading Time reviewer Mem Capp highly recommends the book. Here’s the review:

Max Fatchen grew up on the land, a fact reflected in his poems full of humour, fun and keen observation. Using a range of poetic styles, from couplet, to limerick, to prose poetry, he revels in family fun and folly, dances in the woodshed, and the joy of a flooding creek after times of drought; especially when it means being late for school.

A journalist and writer of more than 20 books, Fatchen wrote novels, picture books and poetry. This new edition of his much loved favourites has an introduction by Janeen Brian and playful  black and white illustrations by Kathy Creamer.

An important addition to any home or school library.  Highly recommended for ages 5+.
