-An Anthology of poems for the whole family to treasure This unforgettable treasury brings together over three hundred of the best loved poems to open the door of the imagination and take children on a unique journey exploring the fun and wonder of rhyme and verse. Designed to grow with your child, the book begins with traditional nursery rhymes, action poems, and young verse by such favourites as Eleanor Farjeon and Shirley Hughes; continues in complexity featuring the work of Roger McGough, Michael Rosen, Ted Hughes, Robert Louis Stevenson, Rudyard Kipling and Christina Rossetti, among others. You can eavesdrop on Lewis Carroll's bizarre conversation between a walrus and a carpenter, revel in the exploits of T. S. Eliot's mystery cat and delight in the confrontation between Roald Dahl's wolf and Little Red Riding Hood. You will see how Edward Lear and Michael Palin can make you laugh in just a few lines and how longer poems like Robert Browning's The Pied Piper of Hamlyn can tell a story. Illustrations by Quentin Blake, Angela Barrett, Satoshi Kitamura and Tony Ross rest beautifully alongside the work of classic chldren's illustrators such as Kate Greenaway, Arthur Rackham and Jessie Wilcox Smith. This Treasury is for the whole family to share and will last throughout childhood - and beyond.
