Leaves Are Like Traffic Lights

Publisher: Salt Publishing

Review

Featuring turbo-charged trees, double agent forests and leaves that perform magic, this is a wide-ranging collection of fun, lyrical and thought-provoking poems.

Old poems are mixed with new poems that celebrate the outdoors, tree-climbing, forest school, ecological matters and nature in the city, alongside a smattering of favourites from previous anthologies and collections. As ever Andrew infuses the poems with his bonkers and surreal imagination.

Part of Salt Publishing's wonderful Children's Poetry Library, this lovely collection is delightfully illustrated by Peters' son.
