Overview

Aimed at junior readers, this collection offers a diverse mixture of familiar and classic poetry chosen by Anne Fine: from W.H. Auden, A.E. Housman, Christina Rossetti, Wordsworth and other poets. Also included are poems from the late 20th century like Stevie Smith's "Not Waving but Drowning" or Ted Hughes "Full Moon and Little Frieda". Poets from Afro-Caribbean backgrounds like John Agard and Grace Nichols are also featured, alongside several other poets from non-European cultures. A collection of over 70 poems, the book also contains tips from Anne Fine to help children understand the poems.
