All the Wild Wonders: Poems of the Earth

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

Whales and wind, tigers and eagles, concrete and night-time dreams. Celebrating the wonder and variety of the earth - and the need to protect it - this is an eclectic collection of poetry from across time and continents that takes you in a new direction at each page turn.

It will make you think, make you angry, make you sad and make you wonder - and make you see what is around you with new eyes.

The illustrations in this beautiful, hopeful, sometimes startling anthology have a spiky, elegance, beautifully combining sweeping colour-washes, delicate detail and inspired colour combinations; the selection of poems is assured and constantly interestingly. An ecological call to arms that is also a true pleasure.
