We Are Family : Six Kids and a Super-Dad - a poetry adventure


There's Dad's disgusting nettle soup and peculiar pancakes, horrible home haircuts, punishing press-ups and scum in the bath tub. BUT then there's the joy of boxing lessons with Dad, fun family outings, jokes and pranks - and storytelling round the fire. Not to mention a homemade birthday cake like no other!

The author's real-life childhood - rough, tough but happy - is vividly depicted in this ground-breaking, debut story told in poems.
