This is a superb anthology of poems selected by the keenly wicked eye of Roger McGough. Poems from Jo Shapcott, Benjamin Zephaniah, Carol Ann Duffy, Shel Silverstein all jostle places with poems from new talent. It is a brilliant collection that takes wicked at all levels, from cheeky to naughty, from wild to exuberant, to dowright, pure, evil ...Wicked! 'An outstanding collection of poems by poets past and present' - "Financial Times". 'The collection is full of jokes and entertaining wordplay, and an overarching sense of cool, while Layton's scribbly illustrations complement the sense of unstuffiness' - "Sunday Times".
