Poetry to make you laugh, think and play, edited by Rebecca M. Newman and Sally Murphy, illustrated by Briony Stewart
of catching that wave
the wave caught me.
Stand on your head with Sally Murphy (that’s me!), explode some dynamite with Cristy Burne or shoot some hoops with Cheryl Kickett-Tucker. Grow a poet-tree with Meg McKinlay or curl up next to your cat with Amber Moffat and watch a bit of Stink-o-Vision with James Foley. These and loads more poems by Australian poets are there to discover in Right Way Down. With striking illustrations by Briony Stewart, these poems will have you laughing, thinking, and playing with words – whichever way up you read them.
Out now, and available in your local brick and mortar bookstore (if it isn’t there, ask them to get it in!) or online.
