What would happen if the Queen ate too many baked beans?
If your teacher got locked in the loo, would you let them out?
Why are some dinner ladies so horrible?
And why do children love talking about wee and poo so much?
These are just some of the questions that Conrad ponders in The Baked Bean Queen, his third collection of humorous poems for children. If his first two books are anything to go by – PARENTS BEWARE! Reading this book could be hazardous to your child’s health. Raucous laughter and huge gasps for air have been widely reported whenever children come into contact with Conrad’s poems.
I'm at Castleford Library waiting to do a storytelling workshop. The three crowd members so far are rather familiar😀.
I ran some workshops here last summer. One of the boys who came was called Peter. He attended as part of his Children's University course where he had to do 1000 hours. At the end he'd to pick his favourite moment.
Mabel keeps telling me about the 'turtle on my knee' in the song Attention. I couldn't believe that was right, but she assured me it was. I've just looked it up - 'throwin' that dirt all on my name' isn't nearly as good as Mabel's invention 😀 ... See MoreSee Less
Check out Wakefield Libraries getting in on the rhymes! Good work 😀 ... See MoreSee Less
You know that you'll have a great time

When Conrad is here-
