MEDIA REVIEWS

"Packed with an exciting variety of poems for children by a top team of fantastic poets." - Book Trust

"The theme of change threads through the 43 poems in this charmingly illustrated little book. Each of its contributors presents one of their own poems, alongside one of their favourite classic poems. You can flip from a Yeats (He mourns for the Change that has come upon him and his Beloved and longs for the End of the World) to Abigail Parry’s Instructions for Not Becoming a Werewolf. Irresistible, for all ages." - Guardian - Top 10 Poetry Anthologies

"Poetry for a Change is a skilfully edited anthology that mixes emerging new poets with immortals such as Shakespeare and Yeats." - Emily Bearn, The Oldie Review of Books

"This special anthology features poems by the National Poetry Day Ambassadors, a top team of fantastic poets who bring poetry alive all year round. It includes new poems by these poets and in addition, each poet has chosen a favourite poem to share. It's a great way to include a wide variety of poetry, by including contemporary poets along with classics. Each poet writes about themselves, what inspires their poetry, and why they chose their classic poem. This makes for fascinating reading and gives an excellent insight into what lies behind the poems we enjoy and their writers." - Parents in Touch

"A collection of many and varied voices: so much packed in to such a slim volume." - Reading Zone 5 star review

"A superb anthology of contemporary and classic poems. This special anthology features poems by the National Poetry Day 2Ambassadors, a top team of fantastic poets who bring poetry alive all year round. - Read it, Daddy! Book of the Week
