Synopsis

Our Bog is Dood Selected Poems for Young Readers by Stevie Smith

Stevie Smith was one of the most popular poets of the twentieth century. Her originality lay in her very particular way of looking at the world: she seems never to have lost the fanciful and undaunted habit of questioning and noticing things that she had when young. This selection is made with younger readers in mind. It introduces us to an imaginative, anarchic realm where anything is possible, a world where fairy stories and real life are interchangeable. A galloping cat, a frog prince, a girl who possesses a magically transforming hat and a parrot who may have witnessed a dreadful crime - these are just some of the extraordinary characters we meet along the way.

About the Author

Stevie Smith (1902-71) lived in Palmers Green, London, and for much of her life worked as a secretary for the magazine publishers Sir George Newnes and Sir Neville Pearson. Her first book, Novel on Yellow Paper, appeared in 1936, and her final collection of poems, Scorpion, was published posthumously in 1972. In 1966 she received a Cholmondeley Award and in 1969 was awarded the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
