Review: The PoetryJoe Show, Hackney Wow

I was really excited and a little bit nervous to see Poetry Joe from the Cbeebies show Rhyme Rocket at Half Moon Theatre. I got a hippo stamp on my hand and then we met Joe. We did poems about spinach, spaghetti, happy and grumpy hamsters.

He had a special book with lights, it was filled with poems and pictures. I drew a picture of a horse and it was shown on the screen. He made creepy crawlies come out on the screen and go all over the curtains. Joe screamed but they weren’t real. They were just toys on the lightbox. I had lots of fun and I would go back again!
