Trish Cooke
Frances Lincoln
Mar 2006
The mood is light, the rhythm is tight in this collection of fast tempo poems published as the second book in Frances Lincoln�s new fiction range for 8 � 12 year olds. Trish Cooke � familiar to many as the award-winning author of popular picture book �So Much� � brings lightness of touch and great verve to these exuberant explanations of how dog lost his bone, why wasp can�t make honey and� of course, the eponymous �Hey Crazy Riddle�.

In the author�s note, Trish explains how she is still able to hear her father�s mischievous voice teasing as he used to when he told her the stories. This lends the poems a real sense of heritage and you cannot help but feel a part of an age-old oral tradition when reading them aloud � and they must be read aloud and be allowed to be shared, because it is then that they become alive!
