How Many Points for a Panda, Poems for Everyone, Hilda Offen, Troika Books.
This tackles subjects such as what to do if you are swallowed by a whale, and other tricky subjects that must be solved by young and old alike. The book’s poems are beautifully illustrated by the poet herself.
My favourite poem in this is The Naming of Clouds:
