Children will enjoy reading poems about many of the typical adventures and mishaps that occur when they go outside. There will be poems featuring school camps, family picnics and church outings, with related themes of animals, nature and weather, awe and wonder. As in her previous collection, Breaking the Rules, Coral writes with insight and humour, using a variety of different verse forms, enhancing both the book's visual and educational appeal.
Coral Rumble is an award-winning poet and performer. She won the prestigious Caterpillar Poetry Prize in 2018 and was featured in 'Favourite Poets' published by Hodder Children's Books. Michael Rosen has commented, "Rumble has a dash and delight about her work". Coral has had three collections published, Creatures, Teachers and Family Features, Breaking the Rules, and My Teacher's as Wild as a Bison. Both of her later collections were featured in the 'Best Books'supplement of Junior Education Magazine, and were selected as 'choices' by The Children's Poetry Bookshelf. She has contributed to around 150 anthologies for children. You will find her work in various education trade books and, being a football fan, she is very proud that one of her poems was included in a poetry exhibition at the National Football Museum in Preston! In the past she has contributed to the National Poetry Day resources for schools, produced by the Poetry Society, and works with the Poetry Society on other ventures, like the Trafalgar Square tree project, 'Look North More Often'. Coral is Poetry Editor for the Writers Advice Centre in London.
