About the Book

Yesterday, I knew how disgusting it was to eat sheep brains And broccoli. And oysters. Yesterday, I could fly a kite, Keep a secret, And swing from the clothesline. The world felt settled. Then Laura Fisher spoke to me. Now a million weird worries surround me, And I’m not sure if I will survive grade 5.—Alan j. Wright

Alan j. Wright firmly believes that poetry should be fun in the head and on the lips. In his second collection of adventurous verse for young poetry lovers, Alan lyrically celebrates everything from pirates to pink pyjamas and his lifelong dislike of broccoli.

He leads all ages on a delightful, poetic journey through the far reaches of his experiences. Within poems popping with life and laughter, Alan clarifies, among other things, his strong need for breakfast cereal, the perils of playing Kiss Chasey, and the joy of playing cricket in the park.

I Bet There’s No Broccoli on the Moon shares a fun collection of poetry that explores the joys of life, the adventures of Martina the astronaut, and why the world is full of silly songs.
