Product description

Review

'Children will meet some of the best-known poetry in English in Jackie Morris's The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems. The bright watercolors and intriguing hints of story that Morris splashes across the pages make this an attractive venue for first encounters with the soon-to-be-familiar ... the more than 70 poems have enough range and allure to entice the young and the adults who read to them. Luminaries like Yeats and Poe keep amiable company with Ogden Nash (The Tale of Custard the Dragon) and Alfred Noyes (The Highwayman)' --The New York Times Sunday Book Review

'Wonderful poems come together with breathtaking illustrations in this gorgeous gift book. The words of Sylvia Plath, A.A. Milne and others make this a feast for the eyes and ears, and a collection to be treasured for life. --The Guardian

'This beautifully produced book takes the reader on a journey through life. From the beautiful Morning Song by Sylvia Plath, about the birth of a child, to Shakespeare's reflection on the seven ages in All the World's a Stage, the classic poems celebrate the breadth of human experience, offering glimpses into other worlds. It is a gloriously illustrated volume to share with children of all ages --The Good Book Guide

About the Author

Carol Ann Duffy is an acclaimed poet and playwright who has also written many picture books. Her book of children's poetry, Meeting Midnight, was short-listed for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year, 2000 and her latest collection, Rapture was the winner of 2006 T.S. Eliot Prize. Carol Ann lives in England with her daughter, Ella. The Tear Thief is her first authored book with Barefoot. She has also written the introduction to The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems. Jackie Morris trained as an illustrator at the Bath Academy of Art, England and now lives in a small cottage near the sea, held together with spiders' webs with two children, two dogs, and too many cats. Jackie has written and illustrated many books and has won international acclaim for the quality of her work. Among her best-loved picture books are The Greatest Gift, written by Susan Summers (Barefoot Books, 1997) and Can You See a Little Bear?, written by James Mayhew (2006). Jackie's latest project with Barefoot Books is The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems, which has been nominated for this year's Kate Greenaway Award, to be announced in spring 2008.
