Publisher Review

This beautifully designed anthology about love in many forms is a delight from cover to elegant purple bookmark. A wonderful gift for a literate teenager, it will also be enjoyed by many others unsure how to approach poetry. Riddell offers a stylish pick 'n' mix for all tastes and his graceful illustrations enhance this volume, sometimes stretching a single poem out over three or four pages. -- Bel Mooney * Daily Mail and Mail Online * Riddell's drawings seem blown speedily across the pages as if by a spring breeze. But the pleasure and surprise is that the poems themselves are not light as candyfloss. This is a stupendously well-chosen, feelgood anthology in which even feel-bad poems feel good. This little book is a must-have, with poems that will make you feel more alive. -- Kate Kellaway * The Observer - The New Review *
