Synopsis

Anither Hantle O Verse Poems in Scots for Children by Bette Boyd

This is a collection of poems in Scots for children. It follows the successful A Hantle o Verse compiled by Bette Boyd and Michael Elder, published in 2003 of whom Speaking English, The Journal of the English Speaking Board said: 'All lovers of Scottish poetry - teachers, festival organisers and speakers - should have this book on their shelves.' The Scots Magazine said '...it will be enjoyed by all ages.' This new volume has poems by Mtthew Fitt, Christine de Luca, JK Annand, Willa Muir, William Soutar, Marion Angus and Robert Burns; the collection also has traditional and 'Anon' verses. It is illustrated by eight black and white photographs from NMS' Scottish Life Archives collection.

Reviews

' ... The poems leap from the page and, what is more, most of them beg to be read aloud. It is vital that the luscious sounds be sounded out and heard. The book is a delightful mix of traditional and contemporary verses. ... there is much to be enjoyed by children and adults south of the border and, indeed, in any other English speaking part of the world.'
