Whether you’re 5 or 105 this is a real dream of a book; a collection of poems that reflect every facet of life with a thoughtful blend of humour and playfullness, poignancy and nostalgia. It’s a collection to be treasured and dipped into at any time and the dream-like illustrations complement the words quite beautfully. In a word – the ‘rolls-royce’ of poetry books.

 

Bel Mooney, the well-known author and columnist is equally enthused: ‘This is a wonderful collection.

That’s what ‘classic’ means. That’s why we will always need books like this.’
