Beautiful illustrations complement the poems making a collection to savour.

Synopsis

Oxford Book Of Children's Poetry by Michael Harrison, Christopher Stuart-clark

To coincide with the centenary of Oxford Children's Books we are proud to present this definitive new collection. Including all the major children's poets, and with a wonderful range of both classic and modern favourites, this is a book that will be treasured for a lifetime. The poems are enhanced with black and white artwork from a number of top children's illustrators to create a truly special package, which should be on every child's bookshelf.

About the Author

Michael Harrison was born and educated in Oxford and later went to Durham University, where he gained a BA in Philosophy. He then taught at a farm school in North Queensland, Australia as a member of the Bush Brotherhood. He milked the herd of cows daily and travelled the bush taking services and funerals. Michael returned to Oxford to get a teaching qualification (A.C.E.) at the University, and has since taught in Hartlepool, London, and now in Oxford.

In his own words:

Michael has worked extensively with Christopher Stuart-Clark and their anthologies, including The Oxford Treasury of Time Poems and The Oxford Book of Christmas Poems, are regarded as some of the nation’s best.

Michael is married with two sons and lives in Oxford.
