Things people say about Steve's other poetry books:

"Once, I laughed my socks off was a great poetry book that got students reading poetry without them even realizing it... I would highly recommend this for a poetry lesson for elementary students for poetry lessons or for just light fun reading in the classroom." - Goodreads reviewer

"A wondrously funny book of poetry for children." - Goodreads reviewer

"The poems are hilarious, fun and playful and I absolutely loved reading this collection of poems." - Goodreads reviewer

"I know when I was being taught poetry really young I could very little interest in exploring it further till I was older, but this book would have definitely enticed me enough to start looking sooner. It was fun and silly and it is great for kids" - Goodreads reviewer

"This large format book was a joy to read by myself and with its bright, simple illustrations easy to share while spoiling my grand children with lots of funny words that had a natural rhythm." - Goodreads reviewer

"I got this for the 4th grade poetry project for my daughter. She is a reluctant reader, but these poems were so funny and engaging for her, that she read her assigned number of poems without complaint. She even memorized one to share with the class." - Amazon reviewer

Hi, I'm Steve

I've loved my journey becoming a children's poet. I've seen my books enjoyed by kids, adults, and teachers. The best thing about writing for children is seeing them comment about how they've been inspired to read or write more poetry. And when I learned that my poems were being used in schools as teaching aids... well, you can imagine how pleased I was about that.So if you enjoy one of my books or use one in the classroom, do drop a review or find me on the web and let me know what you think - spreading the word helps so much and inspires me to write more.

Kids poems, funny illustrations, and humour through-and-through.
