The Coggly Poon book cover

David Hornsby, who wrote Tom’s Bomb, which has appeared in several anthologies and is a favourite poem of many children, has been urged by his fans to publish more of his work. He has now produced a collection of humorous verse, for ages 8 – 100, with his own amusing drawings. This book includes Sir Samson Simpson’s Sloop, with every single word beginning with S, and The Coggly Poon, introducing the reader to lots of unusual words – all of which can be found in the dictionary.
