These four humorous 4-line verses, written by this contributor, feature aliens, giants and fairies – in rather awkward predicaments. They draw reluctant readers, showing that reading can be fun, and perhaps inspiring children to have a go at writing funny rhymes themselves.

Their humorous, light, flowing style also serves to lift spirits and encourage a positive, cheerful mindset, supporting mental wellbeing.
