About The Author:

Joseph Coelho’s poems have been published in several anthologies. Joseph has been a guest poet on Cbeebies Rhyme Rocket and has featured alongside Michael Rosen and Valerie Bloom on Radio 4’s Poetry Playtime. His début children’s collection Werewolf Club Rules (Frances Lincoln) won the 2015 CLPE CLiPPA Poetry Award. As well as poetry, Joseph also writes picture books and non-fiction books . All of his work has poetry and an element of performance at its heart, making his festival and school sessions dynamic occasions.

About Joseph’s Books:

‘A Year of Nature Poems’: A poem for every month, this is a beautiful anthology of nature poems by best-loved children’s poet, Joseph Coelho (illustrated by Kelly Louise Judd), that encourages a love for the natural world and the importance of looking after it.

‘Zombierella’: The first in a funny, deliciously dark, three-part series of twisted classics, written in verse by award-winning poet Joseph Coelho and illustrated by Freya Hartas. A yellow moon hangs in a satin sky the night Cinderella, barefoot and in hand-me-downs, slips at the top of the stairs … and dies. But not for long.
