The tiger growls, its eyes ablaze, but we too have our tiger ways, we too can pad through the dark wood of the cosmic neighbourhood. Leap with hares, call out to the sun, run with the wind, pull silly faces with monkeys, watch out for the bear in the bathroom and meet a burping princess! A fantastic new collection for younger children from a prize-winning poet. These poems are perfect for curious young minds, ready for adventures.
Winner of the CLPE Poetry Award George Szirtes' children's poems comprise riddles, mysteries and parables, strange encounters, cautionary tales, and meditations on just about everything under the sun - from the sea's hands to the wind's face. All Szirtes' technical virtuosity is on display, the music, rhyme and cadence fusing together with an Eastern European sensibility to provide a unique collection that will be treasured by all children and not a few adults. This generous new selection displays wit and warm good humour with a hint of the absurd. Also included are a series of translations of children's poems from Hungary including works by Sandor Weoeres and Zoltan Zelk.
