Synopsis

Hailed as the master of comic verse, Colin West is funnier than ever in his latest sidesplitting collection Never Nudge a Budgie! Divided into seven sections, which include "Funny Folk", "Curious Creatures" and "Vicious Verses", Never Nudge a Budgie! collects together one hundred of West's best poems yet. Some are old, some are new; all are infused with his trademark wit. And each poem is paired with a wonderful and winsome picture by the poet himself - don't miss his drawing of a crocodile getting its teeth checked, or of Betty eating spaghetti. There are limericks, tongue-twisters, shape poems and rhymes, each on a more unlikely topic than the last, such as the Ogglewop's large tummy, whether or not to be a bee, and why you should never ever nudge a budgie!
