Product description

Review

It is a compelling mix of all genres and treatments, and readers are sure to be enriched whether they dip in and out of the book or progress through it in a structured way. Enticing and rewarding, this collection gives a real insight into the superb variety of poems on the 20th century. Bookseller

This book is set to become a classic, the sort of book you and your children will enjoy reading for years to come. The book has a handy index of themes as well as indexes of authors, titles and first lines, making it an easy to use reference book. The line drawings add a nice touch and the whole book has a real depth and quality to it, that makes it appealing to children of all ages. Evening Express

From the Back Cover

One hundred poems, one hundred favourite poets. From John Agard and Seamus Heaney, to Walter de la Mare and Benjamin Zephaniah, 'A Century of Children's Poems' is a celebration of the most outstanding children's poets of the twentieth century.

This compelling mix of styles and genres makes it an enticing blend. Join the poetry carnival with John Agard, glimpse 'The Secret Song' by Margaret Wise Brown, delve into Carol Ann Duffy's box of chocolates, stand back in amazement for Kenneth Grahame's Mr Toad, dream of Pamels Mordecai's 'Western Isle' and feel the furnace of Jane Yolen's 'Dragon Night.'

These are just a few of the poems in this wonderful collection which makes it a book to treasure for life.
