You can take nothing for granted in Gerard Benson’s world. It’s inhabited by elephants and magicians, acrobats and dragons, as well as eccentric cats and boys on bikes. His poems move through many moods – from heights of humour to depths of sadness; from nonsense poems to animal verse; from urban experience to flights of fancy.

Well-crafted, witty, haunting – a spell-binding collection.

This collection contains the best of Gerard Benson’s two highly acclaimed books of poems for children, The Magnificent Callisto and Evidence of Elephants, plus a number of new poems.

Gerard Benson is a poet, story-teller, singer and performer. He is one of the team which runs the ‘Poems on the Underground’ project.

He also edited an outstanding anthology, This Poem Doesn’t Rhyme, which won the Signal Poetry Award in 1991. Evidence of Elephants was nominated for the Carnegie Medal.
