Michael Rosen recommends

The Beano Allstars - Dennis The Menace - Soap Box Cart [Ep. 6]

Michael Rosen recommends...

* Skellig by David Almond. Brings magical realism to working-class North-east England.


* Red Cherry Red by Jackie Kay. A book of poems that reaches deep into our hidden thoughts but also talks in a joyous voice exploring the everyday.


* Talkin Turkeys by Benjamin Zephaniah. A book of poems that demands to be read aloud, performed and thought about.


* Greek myths by Geraldine McCaughrean. Superheroes battle with demons, gods intervene in our pleasures and fears – a bit like the spectres in our minds going through daily life, really – beautifully retold here.


* Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. A book that dared to go where no one thought you could with young audiences because it raises tough stuff to do with race.


* Einstein's Underpants and How They Saved the World by Anthony McGowan. A crazy adventure set amongst the kids you don't want to know but who this book makes you really, really care about.


* Beano Annual. A cornucopia of nutty, bad, silly ideas, tricks, situations and plots.
