Summary

An anthology of poems old and new, chosen and illustrated by Chris Riddell.

Chris Riddell has selected his very favourite classic and modern poems about life, death and everything in between.

This gorgeously illustrated collection includes forty-six poems and is divided into sections covering: general musings, school and teenage years, family and roots, love, nonsense, magic and myth, wildlife, war and death. Chris Riddell brings them to life with his exquisite, intricate artwork in this beautiful anthology.

Book of the week

Memorable, thought-provoking collection that is rendered truly beautiful by Riddell's distinct illustrations. Lovely for library or home shelves!
