Michael Rosen's A to Z

The Best Children's Poetry from Agard to Zephaniah

Publisher: Puffin

Review

Former Children’s Laureate, Michael Rosen, gathers together the best children’s poetry from Agard to Zephaniah in this new collection.

There is a poet for every letter of the alphabet, although there are a few exceptions for trickier letters, where Rosen has played around and given the reader something extra to think about!

From Grace Nichol’s poem about her Caribbean gran visiting England to Rosen’s own hilarious account of his father’s intolerance to ‘The Noise’, there are poems to entertain everyone.

A brilliant book for dipping in and out of and a wonderful opportunity for getting to know a diverse range of British poets.
