In Tyrannosaurus Rex Versus The Corduroy Kid, Simon Armitage brings us vivid and memorable poetry that guides the reader through incalculable emotions. Armitage has a style which manages to make the reader's spirit soar, all while keeping their feet firmly planted on the ground with the often serious conflict presented.

This book deals with so many issues which we all face often and does so in an original yet familiar way. Simon Armitage has a style of writing which is so easy to love that even from the first few pages, you will feel as though you have been reading his works for years. Such is the ease with which the reader can connect to this sublime collection.

What I loved most was the inclusion of playful presentation and especially I loved the Sympathy poems which were written with an accent much like my own. I loved reading those aloud and hearing the familiar twang cross my lips. I will be eagerly looking forward to more releases from this author.

Great book! If you only ever buy one book of poetry in your life, this is the one to get.
