That Downhill Yelling

Publisher: Five Islands Press

Release Date: 2005

ISBN: 174128094

Football, cows, bikes and geese; hillsides and long grass, books and the history of Bendigo; the classroom, the laundry and even the freeway; the poems in this book visit all of these with infectious joy.  If I ever use the phrase ”downhill all the way” again, it will inevitably have a new, exuberant meaning.  Jonathan Shaw Editor ‘School Magazine’, NSW. 

Suitable for primary aged readers.

My second collection of children’s poems. A lot of these poems were first published individually in School Magazine, New South Wales. They are a wonderful collection of city, farm, animal and gold poems.
