Out and About A First Book of Poems Synopsis

A beautiful first collection of poems by two-time Kate Greenaway Medal-winner Shirley Hughes. In this wonderful collection of poems, by best-loved and Kate Greenaway Medal-winner, Shirley Hughes, Katie and her little brother Olly go out and about, romping through the changing seasons.
