Edmund Clerihew Bentley (1875-1956) wrote the classic detective story Trent's Last Case but he is also known for the verse form that was named after him - the clerihew.

He was 16 and a pupil at St Paul's School in London when he first started writing clerihews as a diversion from schoolwork.

Middlesbrough author and poet Khadim Hussain came across the art form when surfing the internet and soon became hooked on writing them.

The book is a collection of clerihews he's written "to make people smile".
