If you only want one collection of poetry on your child’s bookshelf then it has to be this stunning 25th anniversary hardback collection by best-selling author Michael Rosen and illustrator Quentin Blake. Alone or together with your child you will be totally transported into the words and pictures and if the book wasn’t good enough it also comes with a CD of the poems read by the author. Poet Laureate Michael best-selling classic collections of poems, “You Can't Catch Me" and "You Can't Put Mustard in the Custard" were first published 25 years ago. Now reissued in a bumper collection, which also shows off Quentin Blake’s accompanying illustrations to excellent advantage, this is a perfect introduction to some of the best and most child centred poems of today. Michael Rosen reads his own poems on the accompanying CD, which is pure magic.
