Description

'I love the book...these short poems pack a punch...and lure you back for a second look...and a new thought, and a wry smile.'
Bel Mooney

'A clever, quirky and intriguing squint at human nature'
Val Hennessy

Beautifully presented and designed, this magical collection of wise and witty rhymes is a heart-warming gift and perfect stocking-filler for Christmas.

The Book Of Upside Down Thinking, by the famed Liverpool poet Brian Patten, is a magical collection of fun and thought-provoking verse written in Morocco and inspired by traditional folk-tales and stories from the Near and Middle East. This beautifully designed collection features colourful hand-drawn tile illustrations alongside Brian’s original poems, which show the world from a different, and unexpected, perspective.

Brian is set to put smiles on faces once more in The Book Of Upside Down Thinking, published fifty years after the anniversary of the publication in 1967 of ‘The Mersey Sound’, the ground-breaking poetry collection co-written with fellow-Liverpudlians, Roger McGough and the late Adrian Henri.

Brian joins us as a guest on our blog to give an insight into the inspiration behind The Book Of Upside Down Thinking. Read his blog post here. 

Made with love, from you to me.
