5.0 out of 5 stars
Inspirational and Educational!, 15 Sept. 2014
Astro Poetica is a gorgeous collection of poems and a book that educates as much as it entertains...
Set against the magnificent and complimentary art of Jools Wilson, Dom Conlon's words jump from the page and you're never far away from a chuckle or two. Although aimed at young people this book is just as enjoyable for adults, particularly for those young at heart, and of course shared with children it becomes a magical gateway to explore the stars and cosmos.
The book also has two brilliant sections `Things to Think' and `Things to Do'. Both offer advice to young readers respectively helping them appreciate poetry better and offering tips on how to write poetry. These are both brilliant inclusions to a book that clearly sets out to inspire as much as entertain.
Finally, being a fan of print and product I bought the hard back limited edition which I cannot recommend enough. Delivered in hand wrapped tissue paper, it is beautifully presented, individually numbered and, thanks to following Dom on Twitter, uniquely dedicated to me by the author.
This is an absolutely incredible book that I'm very proud to own and share with others. I cannot recommend this enough to parents, children and anyone young or old in love with poetry, the stars and outer space.
