Synopsis

My First Oxford Book Of Poems by John Foster

Useful as a resource and suitable as a gift, this collection of poems ranges from seeing shapes in clouds to the colourful peacock, and from the silly old baboon to the sounds of the sea and the rhythm of the banjo dance. The poets include Edward Lear, Ogden Nash, Ted Hughes, Charles Causley, James Berry, Eleanor Farjeon, and Spike Milligan.
