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.
Cosmic Disco by Grace Nichols
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.
'A super collection of lively new poems from one of our foremost poets... Brilliant poetry with an astonishing range... The poems really convey the magnificence of the universe.'
