Product Information

"Praise for 'Poems With Attitude', also by Andrew Fusek Peters and Polly Peters -... a fantastic collection of poems for the hormone-frenzied, couldn't care less teenage audience. It deserves not only their attention, but equally importantly that of their parents and teachers, too. - An Amazon reader Amusing poems and gems that make you think about real issues. - The Telegraph If you thought poetry wasn't for you, because it has nothing to do with your life, try reading this collection! - Young Writer Magazine You won't agree with all of them [the poems[, but they'll get you talking! - Is That a Fact? (Scottish Booktrust) A nicely produced, in-your face collection printed with a very clean typeface. - Searchmaster.com, website Buy this collection and it will be read. Read by staff and teachers to pupils and then by pupils themselves for both the pleasure and the pain the poems induce... I cannot emphasise how much every school needs this - in the library, in the classroom, for assembly, for tutorials, for PSHE, left on the windowsills for pupils to pick up - everywhere! - The School Librarian 'Poems with Attitude' is bursting with the raw emotion and hormone-fuelled experimentation of youth... It is rare and welcome to find a collection that speaks so directly to teenagers. - The Guardian
