New and Collected Poems for Children

Publisher: Faber

Review

This collection from Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, brings together the best of her poems for children; new poems are mixed in with verse from Duffy’s four previous children’s collections.

From a poem about Johann Sebastian Baa (a very talented sheep) to The Loch Ness Monster’s Husband to numerous poems about friendship and school, there is something for children aged from nine years old upwards to enjoy.

Atmospheric black and white line drawings enhance each poem and help ensure that this beautiful collection is one readers will want to return to time and time again.
