The Rhyming Diary of Jason Smith

If you have a teacher or a child to buy a Christmas present for, then you really should get a copy of veteran schoolteacher Trevor Cattell's highly amusing book, The Rhyming Dictionary of Jason Smith.

Retired teacher and author, Trevor Cattell has drawn on his over 30 years experience at the chalkface, as they say, to come up with his first book for children.

Jason Smith is a fairly standard boy of 11, with the exception that he enjoys being a diarist, keeping a record of events and occasions that had, for one reason or another, made a deep and lasting impression on him.

Days so recorded included the incident when a dog decided to go to school, what happened when he wore odd socks, the problem of racing infants, or should that be of infants, racing?) the misery of his untidy room, how he played at being Howard Carter one afternoon, and forgot what he should have been doing, and all told in rhyme!

This is a cleverly disguised, highly inventive and most amusing book of poetry for children, teachers and adults.

It is published by Matador at £8.99 and will make a very welcome addition to many Christmas stockings this year!

You can purchase it, and lots of other Christmas books and gifts,  here >>>
