The Lovereading4Kids comment

This Macmillan Classics edition is truly a special gift to treasure. The poems in this collection all by Charles Causley, who is considered to be one of the greatest post-war poets, were chosen and arranged by him. They feature as great a variety of subject and tone and place as any reader could wish for.

About the Author

Charles Causley

Charles Causley was one of England's most distinguished poets. Ted Hughes said, 'Among the English Poetry of the last half-century, Charles Causley's could well turn out to be the best loved and the most needed.' Apart from six years in the wartime Royal Navy he lived almost all his life in his native town of Launceston in Cornwall, where he also once worked as a teacher. He has published many collections of his work both for adults and for children and won a number of literary awards and prizes. In 1986 he was appointed CBE.
