    1. This collection was a delight regardless of your gender, especially the "Talking Turkeys!" poem by Benjamin Zephaniah.


    2. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the version for girls - I wish the two could just have been combined into one volume for children.


    3. Don't be fooled, this collection is excellent for girls too. I thoroughly enjoyed it as a grown-up man, and the kids like it a lot too.
