Collected Poems For Children by Ted Hughes
Bringing together the poems Ted Hughes wrote for children, this collection is arranged by volume, beginning with those for reading aloud to the very young, progressing to the poems in "Under the North Star" and "What is the Truth?" and ending with "Season Songs", which Hughes remarked was written 'within hearing' of children.
‘A sensitive arrangement that makes them accessible to children of all ages whilst demonstration their full range and complexity. Illustrations from the award winning Raymond Briggs lift the words off the page.’ Good Book Guide
‘Buy this for the evocative poems of a former poet laureate Hughes, and the 200 original illustrations by Raymond Briggs.’ That’s Life
