Effortless, quirky, funny children's poetry
on 8 November 2007
This really appeals to both my children and to me. It's a large (A4) format book with Blake's characteristic, spiky, lively illustrations. Daisy Artichoke has a couple of young friends who admire her raven with it's awful croak, her lovely ragged patchwork cloak, and many other unlikely rhyming phenomenon.
It's incredible how many rhymes Blake found, but the poem is effortless and flows beautifully. My eldest child, at 4, loves to join in with the poem and always has a huge smile on his face at the end.
I heartily recommend this book.
