MEDIA REVIEWS
Those who love poetry should snap up Matt Goodfellow's rich and vivid new collection, Bright Bursts of Colour, illustrated by Aleksei Bitskoff. -- Imogen Russell Williams * The Guardian *
This collection has hilarious moments but also has poetry which aims to help children deal with difficult issues, which could be ideal for this moment [...] Beautifully illustrated, this is perfect for those aged eight and over to read alone, or to be enjoyed with parents. -- Express
Matt is a relatively new voice on the poetry scene but his work is so deliciously accomplished that it feels like he's already solidly established. This poetry collection is absolutely superb and so well observed ... This is a poet who really knows and understands children. -- Dawn Finch, Author and librarian * www.awfullybigreviews.blogspot.com *
Matt Goodfellow's latest publication is a much needed pallet of colour and emotion. -- Alison Kelly * Reading Zone *
There's a lot fun in this book, but it also includes poems on more sensitive themes and it can be a good route in to exploring often tricky things with children. -- Sarah Burns * Let Them Be Small Blog *
Whether you need cheering up, a sympathetic ear or something funnier or more thought-provoking, you'll find plenty in this poetry collection for every occasion and mood. -- BookTrust
Matt Goodfellow is a fresh voice on the children's poetry scene. * Pie Corbett *
This collection has hilarious moments but also has poetry which aims to help children deal with difficult issues, which could be ideal for this moment. Beautifully illustrated, this is perfect for those aged eight and over to read alone, or to be enjoyed with parents. * The Express *
From joyfully absurd meditations on whether cats have flavoured fur to a harder-hitting examination of how it feels to live between two homes, Goodfellow has the knack for choosing all the right words, and retaining the resonant simplicity essential to the best children's poetry. * The Guardian *
The book is a real gift for a teacher looking for quality poetry to inspire a class! * North Somerset Teachers' Book Award *
