The Lovereading4Kids comment
Reviewed and selected by our poetry expert, Liam Parkin:
As an experienced children’s poet, Tony Mitton’s new collection is a feast of diverse poems ready to absorb any imagination – ‘who knows what you’ll find?’ With beautiful rhymes and rhythms, Mitton’s collection brings forth humour and intellect that is entirely accessible to young readers. An excellent feature of this piece is the sound he creates; from the big red boots that squeak and toot, to the evil onomatopoeic will o’ the wisp. Yet the distinguishing feature of this collection is the use of legend and myth, ranging from ‘Death and the Knight’, the Chinese deity of compassion ‘Kwan Yin’ and ‘The White Horse of Uffington’. All who read this will be thoroughly entertained and learn something new with Mitton’s exquisite storytelling. If there is ever a poetry collection to read with your children, this is most certainly it.
Come into This Poem by Tony Mitton
I saw the ghost horse through the trees on a late midsummer night. It cropped the grass in a forest glade by a full moon's milky light. What is the mysterious ghost horse doing in the woods? Who is the spy who wrote with the blood of a poisonous toad? Then discover the Cold Comfort Pets - including the pet germ, and the Itchy Titchy Pet - a frisky flea, or make the biggest sandwich you could ever imagine. From spooky legends to dreamy poems, teasers and laugh-out-loud rhymes, expect the unexpected from Tony Mitton. This collection is a poetry adventure waiting to happen...
