Book Overview Enter the crazy world of rap poet Benjamin Zephaniah!

Zephaniah is the reigning king of children's poetry... He has an unselfconscious relish for language and word-play that never strays into the patronising dee-dum-dee-dum-dee-dum territory of so much of children's poetry: his are poems that bounce up from the page and demand to be read, rapped, sung and hip-hopped aloud. * Independent on Sunday *
Benjamin Zephaniah's poems are short, funny and modern. This is poetry with attitude * The Times *

Benjamin Zephaniah was born in Birmingham and moved to London when he was 22. He has written acclaimed poetry collections for adults and for children. He has his own band and has made rap and dub ranting art forms by combining poetry with music. He spends much time visiting schools, youth clubs and prisons. Benjamin Zephaniah made headline news when he was short-listed for the Chair of Poetry at Oxford University. He lives in London.
