In this captivating collection of poetry, celebrated poets Ted Kooser and Connie Wanek, along with illustrator Richard Jones, explore the wonders of nature in a spirited and magical way – and invite our imaginations out to play.
This stunning gift-book contains thirty exquisite poems by celebrated US poets Ted Kooser and Connie Wanek, beautifully illustrated by artist Richard Jones. A freewheeling romp through the world of imagery and metaphor, this quietly startling collection is framed by the four elements and divided into thoughtfully-curated sections, exploring art and reality, fact and fancy. Look around: what do you see? A clown balancing a pie in a tree, or an empty nest perched on a leafless branch? This charming compendium of the fleeting and unexpected turns the everyday – towering trees and tiny tadpoles; roaring fires, lazy afternoons, and pillowy white marshmallows – into poetic gold. A brilliant and timeless collaboration that evokes both the mystery and grandeur of the natural world and the cosy, mundane moments of daily life, this wonderfully illustrated collection is the go-to gift book of the season for poetry fans of all ages.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Poignant and judiciously chosen language paints vivid pictures of a range of scenes and experiences, such as the tingling excitement of watching a Meteor Shower or watching the Autumn leaves fall In November […] In a world full of noise, rush and busyness, this beautiful collection encourages us to stop and look at the world around us, taking in the small details with a poet’s eye. - Charlotte Hacking, Books for Keeps

This stunning collection of poems is a delightful celebration of nature. […] This is certainly a collection to inspire children to write their own poems. - BookTrust

The whole book is a triumph of expression – each art fertilises the other and produces something more than their pairing. The poems are wonderful – with vivid language and wordplay, wit and imagination, they do not talk down to their young audience and each poem is imaginative and multifaceted enough to engage an adult audience also. - Poetry Roundabout
