Description

Michael Rosen was born into a London Jewish family, the son of two distinguished educators – Connie and Harold Rosen. My grandson's (5 years old) review of this book was first great hilarity at the title then doing his best to read it alone.

He regularly performs his poetry in schools, and can be heard on BBC Radio 4 as a regular presenter. The narrowness of his course of study proved a source of dissatisfaction and Michael began looking outside his recommended reading to contemporary working, class ballads. As well as his own books, he has illustrated books for authors such as Roald Dahl, Paula Danziger and Michael Palin. Michael attended Middlesex Hospital Medical School for a year but transferred to Wadham College, Oxford to study English Literature.The stories are funny and would be just as suitable for a parent to read to their child, chapter by chapter , or to help encourage reluctant readers to pick out words they recognise and then have the page read to then. Although it was not planned as a collection for children, it appeared on Andre Deutsch’s children’s list. He was the Children’s Laureate from 2007-2009 and has published over 200 books for children and adults, including the recent bestseller Many Different Kinds of Love and On The Move. A man and his dog watch their favourite football team getting beaten over and over again - but could a surprise substitute change the game? Part of the series of books that includes Bilal’s Brilliant Bee and Barking for Bagels, Fluff the Farting Fish is a short early reader novel that will delight 6-7 year olds looking for a fun story and a few giggles along the way.

This is absolutely perfect for any children moving on to slightly longer books (it doesn't actually have chapters, but if your child is just moving on to chapter books, this is an ideal choice) or to read aloud. As ever, former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen tells a delightfully relatable story – this time, to kids who are desperate for a pet. This, says Michael, was a turning point – “Suddenly it all fused: the writing, the performing, the popular audience. Perfect for every child who’s just beginning to read alone, this hilarious tale is a roller coaster ride of fame and fortune and the possible resulting disasters. Some words had a British slant, some were a bit challenging, but she worked them out and got thru the 80 pages of “Fluffy the Farting Fish” ( her favorite so far) in less than an hour.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. He is currently Professor of Children’s Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London where he co-devised and teaches critical approaches to reading on an MA in Children’s Literature, having done the same at Birkbeck, University of London. Fluff can't sit, she won't bark on command, but she does have a very special fishy talent all of her own.
