‘Stop Momo!’

Hi guys,

My name is Alys and I’m a poet and writer based in Adelaide,  South Australia. My story, Momo and Hana, is about a very special young dog called Momo who has an extremely unusual gift. It was published in Orbit (School Magazine), Feb 2017.

If you enjoyed Momo and Hana you may like to read:

“You’re the best poet in the whole world!”
– Ok so my son might have said that.

A trouble shared’s a trouble halved,’ you said to me last night.

And wouldn’t you just know it; my goodness you were right!

As, up to then, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do,

but, on your kind suggestion, I gave half my nits to you.

 Momo was beautifully illustrated by Althea Aseoche. If you’d like to see more of Althea’s illustrations click here:

I write silly poems too.

When did the dingo?

Who gave the magpie?

Where can the wallaby?

Why did the butterfly?

I wonder if the pelican or if the pelican’t?
