Summary

Brought to you by Puffin.     

Enter the crazy world of rap poet Benjamin Zephaniah!     

Funky Turkeys is the first audio edition of Benjamin Zephaniah's poetry collection for children - playful, clever and provocative - this is performance poetry at its very best.  

An unconventional collection of straight-talking poems about heroes, revolutions, racism, love and animal rights, among other subjects, that will entice many new listeners to poetry. 

Poems in this audiobook were first published in Funky Chickens and Talking Turkeys.

Performance Poet

Happy, sad, funny, shocking, hopeful and despairing, Zephaniah's poetry has the power to inspire them all.

Read by the poet himself 😊 a listen to dip in and out of many times.
