ANIMAL ANTICS - Debjani's poems & cartoon illustrations for children, published by Pennine Pens, Hebden Bridge, in association with The Poetry Society, 48 pp, ISBN 1 873378 03 3, £5.99
  Chuckle at the crazy antics of the animals in Debjani Chatterjee's amazing menagerie: 'the astro-turtle hurtling through space', the hippo who bellowed, the elephant under the bed, the snake who came to school, the adder who learnt yoga, the rabbit-magician, the bridge-building monkeys, the sloth who loved 'hanging around', and many more, accompanied by the poet's own cartoon-style illustrations.
  Many of these 47 poems were written while Debjani Chatterjee was The Poetry Society's Poet-in-Residence at Sheffield Children's Hospital. Introducing the collection, Andrew Motion calls it a 'beguiling' and 'heartening book, written by a poet full of wit and charm'.
