Is This a Poem?
Another new anthology! The children’s poetry world is coming alive!
This excellent book, edited by Roger Stevens and illustrated with great fun by Spike Gerrel, takes a trip through a journey of different types of poetry – there are advertising jingles, football chants, haiku, free verse, rap, shape poems, riddles, poems that rhyme and many more that don’t and more – the question asked is, are these really poems?
Roger Stevens, excellent poet and excellent friend looks at them all and explains what’s what, and what’s more gives you brilliant tips on how to write your own poems as well.
