Cherry Moon

Publisher: Troika

This big, beautiful book would make a wonderful present; it’s a book to pore over again and again. The short, simple poems are joyous nods to nature in all its awe and wonder, from the ‘snapping turtle’s haiku’ to’ a letter to the moon’. The poems ask questions; ‘How Does the Stone Smell?’ ‘How Does the Flower Open?’, and celebrate the colour and movement of life all around us.

The poems bounce around the page, enjoying the freedom of the white space, punctuated by glorious screenprinted artwork from Junli Song in a cool retro palette. This is a book to enchant, inspire and treasure.

Any poetry or art lover would surely welcome Cherry Moon into their library, and it makes the perfect introduction to creative writing for young readers.
