The Journal of Danny Chaucer (poet) is a verse novel, that is written in poetry by performance poet, author, musician and artist Roger Stevens. It was first published in 2002, in Great Britain by Orion Children’s Books.
interesting and funny story is written in the first-person and tells
of a year in Danny Chaucer’s life. He has a new guitar, a new band but
stop thinking of Jenny Keane.
book is a lot of
fun to read. It is really short and easy to read but it remains witty
entertaining. Nearly anyone can enjoy reading this book but kids from
up will probably enjoy it more than others.
poems all vary in
one way or another. They are smart, tasteful and slightly out of the
found great pleasure in reading them. My favourites are the songs Danny
for his band which are mostly about love. Roger Stevens is an
talented writer, something most evident in this book. It made me feel
contented and I have since searched for more of his work. This is an
book, which I recommended to anyone wanting a light and easy read which
doesn’t force you to think but stays clever at the same time.

The Journal of Danny Chaucer is a verse novel written by Roger Stevens. The book is about a boy who has a dream to become a rock star; he joins a band and writes song about the love of his life Jenny Keane. He receives a new guitar, a fender Stratocaster and his father is heaps proud of him.
I thought this book was a good and would be suitable for readers aged 10 to 12. The book is an easy book to read because it is in verse novel style.
