These Are a Few of my Scariest Things

November 14, 2017

Just thought I should give my new book a puff: it is a collection of children’s poetry called These Are a Few of my Scariest Things. If there is  a child aged between 5 and 11 whom you’re thinking of buying a present for and you only have £5.99 to spend, this would be the ideal gift. Available through Amazon – their website claims they have no copies in stock, but it is print-on-demand so if you order one you’ll get it swiftly. Here is a sample to whet your appetite:

The Castle Ghost

At night, in the castle courtyard,

you can see Sir Walter Pugh,

whose head was removed from his body

in fifteen forty-two,

for writing a scurrilous poem

that ridiculed the King;

so the King had him charged with treason

and the axeman did his thing.

 

And every night he wanders

in his doublet and bloodstained ruff

with his head held under his armpit;

and if you’re brave enough

you can go up close and listen

and hear him softly mutter

the poem that stated that Henry the Eighth

was a psychopathic nutter.
