Daydreams and Jellybeans by Alex Wharton & Katy Riddell


Come and dive into to this perfectly delectable poetry collection written by Alex Wharton and illustrated by Katy Riddell, Daydreams and Jellybeans.

There’s a huge range here – both content wise and stylistically.

Capturing the world from a child’s point of view Wharton’s love of language is abundantly clear. From the playful ‘Jellybean’, the thoughtful and compassionate ‘Man in Town’, the melodic Night Music, the range in this collection is delightful.

‘Mr Madewrong’ will make you giggle…

“The build me without instructions,

couldn’t be bothered to read them

apparently there’s no need,

but I disagree.”

…and remember to read the instructions!

‘Star Control’ will encourage you to look up, and ‘Daydream’ will let your imagination take flight.

Daydreams and Jellybeans is full of joy, warmth and charm.

PS Don’t skip the foreword!
