Hello and welcome to my web site. Some of you may know me as a writer of poems for children. Some may have read my picture books. And, more recently, some of you may know of my Winnie-the-Pooh story in ‘The Best Bear in All the World’, which is published to celebrate Pooh’s 90th birthday.
And if you don’t know me at all – then I’m specially pleased to meet you, and I hope you enjoy looking around the site.

Poem of the week

Cyrus the Virus

The virus.
He’s nasty and he’s mean.

The virus.
So small he can’t be seen.

He lurks on taps and toilet seats,
He really loves the loo!
On bannisters and handles,
Whatever can you do?

Wash your hands! Wash your hands!
Make him squirm and make him struggle.
Wash your hands! Wash your hands!
Send him glooping down the plughole.

He wants to make us cough and choke,
He’s really a disgrace.
If he gets onto your fingers,
He could end up on your face.

Wash your hands! Wash your hands!
It’s the thing he fears the most.
Wash your hands! Wash your hands!
And we’ll make this Cyrus toast!

We can thwart his evil plans
So remember – WASH YOUR HANDS!!!
