DEAD FUNNY is one of four sparkling new collections of nonsense poems which mark the return of Collins Children's Books to poetry publishing. John Foster is a well-known poet and teacher. His book, Wham Bang Orangutan is hugely popular (published OUP).
New and existing material has been brought together to provide this morbidly humorous collection. Well-known poets include Roger McGough, Paul Cookson, Eric Finney and John Foster himself.
Susan avoided the cracks with care
And always trod upon the square;
An unwise move, she was to discover -
She stepped on a manhole without a cover.
