Simon Mole is an acclaimed children’s poet (and sleep deprived dad) who has shared stages with Michael Rosen, Kae Tempest and John Hegley. His first picture book Kites was published in 2019, followed by I Love My Bike available from June 2021.  

Simon is a National Poetry Day Ambassador, with over ten years’ experience using rap and poetry in community and education settings, including projects with Great Ormond Street Hospital and Arsenal Football Club.  

The tutorial videos at his YouTube channel are used by hundreds of thousands of children and teachers across the world each year, and have been featured on BBC Bitesize.  

Simon is also one half of kids comedy rap duo Mole & Gecko (you can probably guess which half).

Simon is currently touring his 3rd show for children and families and I Love My Bike events will take place in Summer 2021.
