Synopsis

David A. Ballard draws inspiration from his own experiences and that of his children and grandchildren, his nieces and nephews, in his first collection of lyrical poems for children of all ages. There are belly laughs including a roller skating grandma, and a mischievouselephant, and a boy with a musical talent for playing his bum, and a mouse that flies to the moon, and a bookworm called Bertie - and don't forget Giggling Gertie! Enjoy reflective poems about the simple things in life, from having fun at the beach and the treasures you can discover in the attic, to the joy of yo-yos, kites and beautiful sunsets. We hope you enjoy this collection of personal poems to make you smile and think from a talented new poet and song writer.

"David Ballard is married with three grown-up children and two grandchildren, and lives on the Isle of Wight. He used to run a musical instrument repair business from home, but now he writes full-time. His hobbies are gardening, playing musical instruments, song writing and composing poetry. He has been writing songs and poems for as long as he can remember, but it had not occurred to him to write for children until his eldest daughter suggested that, perhaps, he should have a go, and with further encouragement from friends and family, this is the result."
