Description

This edition from the best-selling poetry series brings together the most beloved poems for children, from “The Owl and the Pussycat” through “On the Ning Nang Nong” to “I Know Someone Who Can” to “Us Two”.

The Nation’s Favourite Children’s Poems will compel and amuse adults and children alike, with poems drawn from themes as diverse as animals, schooldays, summer holidays, fun with friends and family, and fantastic daydreams – whether it is recalling the anxiety of starting school, as in Roger McGough’s “First Day at School”, the magical visit of a mythical beast in Adrian Henri’s “Kate’s Unicorn”, or the nostalgic realisation that ‘mother always knows best’ in Pam Ayres’s “Oh, I Wish I’d Looked After Me Teeth”. Readers can revisit old favourites by Edward Lear, Hilaire Belloc and A.A. Milne, and dip into the modern musings of poets such as Wendy Cope and Allan Ahlberg.

Introduced by Spike Milligan and including 30 specially commissioned illustrations, this is the perfect treasury of children’s verse and will delight and entertain all generations for years to come.
