Description - The New Faber Book of Children's Poems by Matthew Sweeney
A helter-skelter of a ride, full of unexpected twists and turns, to which readers of any age will want to return, again and again. Matthew Sweeney's landmark anthology represents classic poetry within the context of more recent writing - whether this be taken from the wealth of new poems written for children, or from work which, while written for adult readers, can still appeal to a child's sensibility. It contains poems by authors from many different backgrounds, cultures and geographies, but they share a quality that gives the book an imaginative integrity - a spirit of exploration, undertaken with humour and energy, where the boundaries are limitless.
