Where do Balloons Go? and other poems by Lexy Higgins
Lexy Higgins' unique brand of poetry had led to her being described as Ireland's answer to Pam Ayres and when you read her poems it is easy to see why. She has the knack of voicing the thoughts of the little person in the street, from the ever-hopeful dancer with two left feet to the mum leaving her 0h-so-tiny child on the first day of school and much more.
You will recognise yourself in Lexy's poems: whether you are taking part in the trials and strains of the family holiday; longing for a ciggie; getting that sinking feeling that a dental visit brings or simply lying in bed listening to the rain. Life is here in all her poems and so are we. Attractive black and white drawings throughout.
