Review from Read Plus: http://readplus.com.au/blog_detail.php?id=2491

Billy’s Books, 2009. ISBN 978 0 646 52230 2.
(Age: 8+) Australian poet Richie Cotton has captured everyday themes and characters in quirky, rhyming poetry. From the wiggly worm to the astronaut, children will find a topic they enjoy and maybe even a new one. Independent readers aged 8+ will enjoy the rhyme and rhythm but children of all ages will enjoy hearing the poems – especially the one about spiders biting bottoms! The colourful illustrations compliment each poem, opening up a child’s imagination and giving a better understanding of each text.
These poems would be a great tool for the classroom and helping children’s comprehension before using them as a model for their own writing.
