Poems, animal info, extraordinary women, my books!

National Poetry Day Competition – win some fab books, including mine!

Yes – World Book Day, in partnership with National Poetry Day (this year on 28th September), are giving away an impressive pack of stupendous poetry!

This is what you could win:

This is the sister anthology to the award-winning  A Poem for Every Night of the Year, Macmillan, illustrated by Zanna Goldhawk, which is also edited by the lovely Allie Esiri. I’m in this one! It will be out on the 7th September.










Overheard in a Tower Block, Otter-Barry Books, illustrated by Kate Milner, is by award-winning Joseph Coelho – and is described as “a powerful and moving poetic narrative about growing up in the city.” It is wonderful.










This book by the extraordinary Michael Rosen – Jelly Boots, Smelly Boots, Bloomsbury, illustrated by David Tazzyman, was shortlisted for the CLPE 2017.










This next book, capturing the emotional highs and lows of childhood, is by Ieva Flamingo (Ieva Samauska), illustrated by Vivianna Maria Staņislavska – it’s out on July 27th from Emma Press.










And the last book on offer is MINE – written with Jan Dean and Michaela Morgan, published by Macmillan, illustrated by Steph Says Hello. It is a timeline of extraordinary women and girls, of which Sue Hardy-Dawson says: “Most of all though this is an empowering collection dealing with humour and sensitivity with all the girls and women you should have heard of, as well as those little known and unsung heroines – be they match girls, authors, sportswomen, scientists, artists, teachers, suffragettes or queens.”










To enter this fantastic competition, email with the subject World Book Day NPD competition. The winner will be selected at random after the closing date of 31st August 2017.

You’ll also receive a pack of posters created for National Poetry Day by poet and artist Sophie Herxheimer. Visit the National Poetry Day website for more inspiration including free downloadable resources.

Hope you win!
