Jeremy Zimmerman was fed up with seeing the enjoyment of poetry being lost to the 21st century fixation with smartphones and social media. So, at the age of 81, he has decided to release a beautiful anthology of poems designed to be read with children of all ages and to help keep alive the tradition of reading poetry to kids.
“The latest instalment of the Beaufort Scales series sees the redoubtable ladies of the Toot Hansell Women’s Institute on a relaxing spa weekend. And they’ve invited Detective Inspector Adams … and two dragons. So it should come as no surprise to regular readers that relaxation doesn’t actually happen. Instead there is a mysterious death, some very suspicious guests, some very obstreperous relatives, and an invisible dog. The ensuing chaos is as ever very funny, sometimes quite exciting, and always so readable one quite forgets it is a book, and not something happening right in front of you. Join Beaufort and Mortimer as they meet friends old and new in yet another uproarious tale from the amazingly talented Kim Watt. Step right in. There’s cake!Warring staff.”
