We Are Poets! is Helên Thomas's sparkling collection for younger readers and winner of The Poetry Kit's Book of the Month award. It features a selection of children's poems, ranging from the floor filling anthemic action poem 'Everybody Everywhere Stomp Your Feet!' to the calming, chill-out poetry of 'Memory Beach'. The book showcases a variety of poetic styles including narrative verse, limericks, rap, and there's even a villanelle in there! The poems introduce a wide range of fantastic characters including rock-star silk worms, obese fruit bats, myopic professors and lots of naughty, grubby, scabby children.

Helên has enthralled and entertained audiences the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to The Bowery Club in New York, and once won a karaoke competition in Cairns, Australia! A few years after winning the Manchester Poetry Festival Slam she joined forces with primary school teacher Kate McGann to devise 'We Are Poets', a performance piece for children. All of the poems in this book are written by Helên and feature in the original 'We Are Poets' show and its sequel, 'We Are Poets Stuck at the Airport'.

"Playing with structure and form she produces magical poetry which shows how relevant poetry can be. It's fun, it's amazing, it's Helên on top form. Great illustrations... This is a collection that should be in every school library." - Jim Bennett, The Poetry Kit

"I love your poems so much, I think you deserve a treat." - Yr 1 pupil at Holy Spirit Primary School, Merseyside

"A lively, lovely and very funny collection of children's verse in the spirit of Edward Lear and Roald Dahl." - Arthur Chappell, poet & reviewer

"Year 4 haven't stopped writing poetry since!" - Yr 4 teacher at St. Oswald's School, Netherton
