Win a beautiful collection of poems about migration by former Laureates, Michael Rosen and Quentin Blake
Author and poet Michael Rosen and illustrator Quentin Blake have collaborated to create On The Move: Poems About Migration, a beautiful collection of poetry which looks at the emotional impact of families being displaced and Rosen's personal experiences.
On The Move: Poems About Migration is an incredibly affecting collection of poetry by two of our best-loved children's Laureates.
Michael Rosen reflects on his childhood in a first-generation Polish family living in London, his feelings about the Second World War as a young boy, and his 'missing' family and the Holocaust before turning to look at migration today and the experiences of refugee families. Quentin Blake's unmistakeable style brings the poems to vivid life through beautiful, unsettling illustrations.
