Synopsis

The New Faber Book of Children's Poems by Matthew Sweeney

This definitive anthology of poems for children is a helter-skelter of a ride, full of unexpected twists and turns, to which readers of any age will want to return, again and again. It contains poems by authors from many different backgrounds, cultures and geographies, classic and modern; but they share a quality that gives the book an imaginative integrity - a spirit of exploration, undertaken with humour and energy, where the boundaries are limitless. 'A reminder that poetry is a natural part of our lives - whatever our age.' Guardian
