Book Description

A beautiful collection featuring all of Kit Wright’s finest poems. It includes poems from his best-selling and universally loved collections, Hot Dog, Rabbiting On, Cat Among the Pigeons and Great Snakes and many other treasures too. from The Magic Box I will put in the box the swish of a silk sari on a summer night, fire from the nostrils of a Chinese dragon, the tip of a tongue touching a tooth. I will put in the box a snowman with a rumbling belly, a sip of bluest water from Lake Lucerne, a leaping spark from an electric fish. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
