MEDIA REVIEWS
Rollicking, Caribbean-flavored rhythms compbined with serious matters such as racism define poet extraordinaire Agard. * Voya *
He explores issues of race and identity, violence and grief, love and life. * Carousel *
A performance poet, Agard uses rhyme, repetition and refrains that make his work sing...Skilful use of humour to get his serious points across. * The Book Horn Inc *
A fine introduction to the ... poet's work for older children... This powerful plea for tolerance ... By turns playful and sincere, buoyant and thoughtful, his humanism is the thread that runs through these selections and reaches out to readers of all backgrounds... Agard eloquently voices a universal concern as he describes 'stepping in a big ship/not knowing how long the journey/or that you're stepping into history'. * School Library Jounral-US Review *
Normally poetry is not our thing, but we took the time to really read many of the poems in this book. ('For the Record')... had only 27 words but rhymed well, was amusing and has stuck in our brains. * Teen Titles (Edinburgh City Council) *
