You can also find examples of some poems from the book on my website.

Here's the product description:

We Are Poets! is Helên's award winning collection for younger readers (5+) and their parents! This book showcases a variety of poetic styles including narrative verse, limericks, rap, and there's even a villanelle in there! The poems range from the floor filling anthemic action poem 'Everybody Everywhere Stomp Your Feet!' to the calming, chill-out poetry of 'Memory Beach, and introduces fantastic characters including rock-star silk worms, obese fruit bats, myopic professors and lots of naughty, grubby, scabby children! The Poetry Kit ‘Book of the Month’ award winner: "It's fun, it's amazing, it's Helên on top form. Playing with structure and form she produces magical poetry which shows how relevant poetry can be. This is a collection that should be in every school library." Jim Bennett, The Poetry Kit.
