Synopsis

Magic Poems by John Foster

Here is a wonderful collection of poems about every kind of magic you can think of, with zany full-colour illustrations by the inimitable Korky Paul. Poets featured include Tony Mitton, Michaela Morgan, and Jack Prelutsky. Children will love the humour that runs throughout, and the book is a great introduction to poetry, whether at home or at school. Magic Poems is one of a best-selling series of poetry titles by John Foster and Korky Paul. John Foster and Korky Paul's poetry partnership began over 10 years ago, with the publication of Dragon Poems. The combination of John's inspired and witty selection of poems, with Korky's crazily imaginative and anarchic illustrations, has proved exceptionally popular.

Reviews

This gifted pair work so well together ... the collection [is] in constant demand. Child Education If this combination of verse and illustration doesn't make you laugh out loud, then you must have missed out on the sense of humour gene. The Guardian
