New and collected poems for children
Part of the Faber classics series
'In the world of British poetry, Carol Ann Duffy is a superstar.' (Guardian) This stellar edition of her poems brings together work from her four award-winning collections for children, and sprinkles in a generous helping of new poems to match.
From her dazzlingly debut Meeting Midnight through to her newest, brightest poems, Carol Ann Duffy's writing for younger readers has always bubbled with wit and humour, intelligence and affection, and introduced us to many strange and wonderful characters along the way.
Among the enchanting voices to be heard are those of the Loch Ness Monster's husband, the oldest girl in the world and a herd of cows on a shopping trip to Manchester.
