JOSIE WHITEHEAD - children's poet.:
In 2007 I had almost 400 of my poems chosen by teachers of West Yorkshire and they were then published in five books. The publisher: AMS Educational Leeds. Since then they have been published by Oxford University Press and CGP Books who are the principal educational publisher in the UK.

Witch And Chips By Josie Whitehead

Who lives in Witchy Creek.

And don't get lost but keep up close.
I wonder what we'll find!
We're going to catch the wicked witch.
There's a river we must cross.
Oh don't complain or grumble now.
Remember I'm the boss!
Oooh and Ouch!She's waved her wand
And I am now a fish - - -
Oh how I dread to meet that witch again,
Served with chips upon her dish.
