Pookie Aleera Is Not My Boyfriend
There is a plethora of gorgeously talented authors who are writing novels in verse. I am taken aback by how effective this is in capturing true emotions, character and atmosphere. Think Toppling and Cinnamon Rain. The Weight of Water by Sarah Crossan, featuring a beautiful cover by Oliver Jeffers, is a truly beautiful story eloquently delivered in poignant verse.

The Weight of Water
This stunning début novel from Australian author Emma Cameron is perfect for the YA audience. Cinnamon Rain didn't take me long to read as I couldn't put it down! Intriguing, heartfelt and eloquently written, I loved it.

In the Sea
Lyrical fun and absurdity abound in the pages of Bananas In My Ears. Every good book corner deserves a great poetry collection - far too many teenagers in particular have immediate, adverse reactions to the word 'poetry' - we can't help thinking that growing up surrounded by books such as this one, will highlight the pure fun and entertainment that this genre can provide.

Bananas In My Ears
It began as a rock protest song penned by Paul Kelly and Kev Carmoy, and was first recorded back in 1991. Ultimately, however, the story itself began back in 1966 during the Gurindji walk-off at Wave Hill in NT led by Vincent Lingiari. What began as a fight re the poor working conditions and unequal pay ended with a successful and monumental battle over land rights, with the land being granted back to the Gurindji people by Prime Minister Gough Whitlam on 16 August 1975.

From Little Things Big Things Grow
The magic of TS Eliot is re vamped with a new look courtesy of Axel Scheffler - perfect for a generation familar with The Gruffalo, Charlie Cook and Stick Man. I have spent a lovely Sunday afternoon reading this aloud to my 8 year old.  The language is rich and clever - I have enjoyed exposing her to the genius of Eliot and the magic of his truly great verse.

Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats
Sally Murphy tells beautiful stories in verse, I love exposing children to this - the understanding that not all stories have to be told in the same format.
