Timmy the Tug by Jim Downer, Ted Hughes
  

Synopsis

Timmy the Tug by Jim Downer, Ted Hughes

Ted Hughes was one of the greatest poets of the 20th century. Now, over ten years after his death, Thames & Hudson is publishing a children's poem by him that had been lost for over fifty years. Written in the mid-1950s to accompany his friend Jim Downer's story about Timmy the Tug, the poem recounts Timmy's escape from his moorings and subsequent adventures on the high seas. Downer's illustrations are a charming focus to this enchanting tale that, besides appealing to children everywhere, is set to be one of the biggest literary events of the year.

Reviews

Vigorous, witty, and, as in all [Hughes s] subsequent poetry for children, free from the temptation of talking down to his readers.
