For this month’s competition, we’d like you to write some humorous poems called LIMERICKS. Limericks work like this:
THE POSH MOUSE
Limericks are often silly and funny. Make it about your favourite pet or anyone else who puts a smile on your face. Have fun!
FIVE lucky readers will win this poetic novel from Scholastic UK.
A funny yet heart-shattering novel about a fierce parrot, a big-hearted boy and a spirited elderly widow, all learning to live fully-fledged lives. Born in the back of a pet store, Alastair the African grey parrot dreams of escape, to fly off with his beloved sister, Aggie. But when Aggie is purchased by 12-year old Fritz, and Alastair is adopted by Mrs Albertina Plopky, Alastair’s hopeful vision of the future crash-lands. Between anxiously plucking his feathers, chewing a few books, and finding his own poetic voice, Alastair plots his way to Aggie and their flight to freedom. Age: 8+.
