 "Ten, nine eight...    
  Seven, six, five...

  We'll send up a rocket,

  And it will be live"

This is a slim gem. Sixteen poems from Kit Patrickson, illustrated in colour

features splendid full-colour illustrations.

Let's Send A Rocket               The Dumpy Fairy
What I'll Be                           Uncle Paul
The Painted Rocking-Horse      What I Wear
My Kite                                Knitting
Blow Bubble                          Washing Day

Dressing-up                          The Shinny-shanikin
A Man From Mars                   Push The Pram

There were six Poems For Me books published in total. Raymond Briggs

stapled pamphlets, but they're terrific little things and needless to say,
decidely tricky to track down now!
