The Lovereading4Kids comment

Award-winning Grace Nichols creates all the moods evoked by the title in this beautiful anthology which lightly captures the wonder of the world. Lightly in poems such as ‘Sun, You’re a Star’ Nichols gives her own account of the universe. In a sequence of poems about the seasons including ‘Sir Autumn’ and ‘Lady Winter’s Rap’ Nichols paints the world freshly for her readers. Every poem is a delight in itself while together they give readers a newly painted world.

From Aurora Borealis, Sun - You're a Star and A Matter of Holes, to Lady Winter's Rap, the Earthworm Sonnet and You - a Universe Yourself, this is brilliant poetry with an astonishing range - comic riddles, animals and nature, home truths and the explosive wonder of the cosmos.
