Benjamin Zephaniah's 6 best books

Benjamin Zephaniah is a well-known British poet.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express. One book on his list:
A Book of Nonsense
by Mervyn Peake

An old favourite of mine, this is a book of poems about animals living in jars and that kind of thing. It’s completely off the wall and when I learnt to read properly in my 20s I found it such good fun. It doesn’t talk down to readers.
