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.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. See all Product Description
