Synopsis

A Million Brilliant Poems A Collection of the Very Best Children's Poetry Today by Roger Stevens

Age 9+. The best collection of contemporary children's poems ever! Every anthology has one or two poems that seem to shout out: 'Hey! I'm the best. Read me again. Learn me by heart. Love me.' So here, for the first time, are all of those poems collected together - from the pens (and computer keyboards) of some of the finest poets in the land.

Reviews

'If this varied and witty collection doesn't convert youngsters to enjoying poetry, then nothing will.' Irish Examiner
