"This (The Secret Invasion of Bananas) is a big book! It's laugh-out-loud but it's also a very thoughtful book. These are the sorts of poems that you can read out loud. It's a great book for sharing and I think that children as they're reading through it will find the poems that they want to share and they want to read out to the rest of the family. There is word magic. It's wonderful."
