My Dog Is a Carrot

By John Hegley

A delightful collection of quirky poems by one of this country's most popular poets.

Enter the celebrated poet's weird, witty, bespectacled world and meet the organic leek who has learned to speak, the octopus who gets a nasty shocktopus, the man who drew his cornflakes and a whole cast of other interesting characters. Surprising, serious, and sometimes just plain silly, this is a collection of poems even your dog might like. Unless your dog is a carrot too.

  • A friendly and bright book of poetry from one of the UK's most highly-regarded performers.
  • "Beautifully produced with exciting artwork, this book is a pleasure to behold ... It's a truly brilliant book to give to a child that thinks he or she doesn't like poetry," The Irish Post.

About the author

John Hegley was very glad to receive a pair of glasses at the age of twelve - he’d wanted some since he was five. Years later he worked with two children's theatre companies: Soapbox and Professor Dogg's Troupe, before becoming the popular, highly original stand-up comedian, poet, singer, songwriter and glasses-wearer that he is today. John Hegley has bendy hands and his dog ran away in 1985.
