inspire confidence and creativity with the hope to please even the most reluctant
reader. Working in hundreds of schools, nurseries, libraries, theatres and festivals
around the world, the award winning poet explores a variety of topics from the
ridiculous to the sublime through rhymes, riddles, rap, rhythm and much, much more!
On the Bookshelf
I Bet I Can Make You Laugh
With the help of some of his creative friends, Joshua Seigal has compiled a diverse
collection of funny, imaginative and downright ridiculous poems! The book is sure to
have you in fits of giggles as you read poetry on subjects covering areas such as the
flu, dog eating a piece of homework and love. This book will inspire even the most
reluctant reader to give poetry a go.
I Don’t Like Poetry
From fried chicken to bottoms going missing, I Don’t Like Poetry explores just about
everything you can think of in a silly and hilarious way. Joshua’s writing in this book
will capture all imaginations; young and old and inspire children to create some of
their own poetry. Shortlisted for a Lollies award in 2017 this selection of poems is
great for a shoulder shaking snigger or a rambunctious roar!
