A beautiful hardworking hardback anthology of poems for everyone to enjoy
This book is so comforting and I read it every morning with my mum. Poetry is a brilliant way to start the day. The book is edited by William Sieghart and let's say he did a great job. It is so beautiful, Emily Sutton's illustrations are outstanding and so detailed. Two of my favourites are Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf by Roald Dahl and Life Doesn't Frighten Me by Maya Angelou.
