Fiona Murphy and Michelle Last’s collaboration as poet and illustrator for ”˜Down the Plughole’ can be described in one  word, ”˜delightful’. These charming poems and drawings  demonstrate the strength and talent of both poet and illustrator. The words  and pictures will appeal to any young child and indeed will amuse adults as  well. The poems are fun but serious too. In ”˜Why Mum’ there are  questions about the universe that will be interest any child and prompt  thinking, ”˜Where does the sun go at night?’ In another poem the  moon says to the cloud, ”˜I can change the tide. What can you  do?’ And the cloud answers.Read the poem to find out the answer! The poems in this collection work on many levels and the bookdeserves a  place on any child’s book case.Wendy French
