Looking through my archives I realise I haven’t mentioned the publication of this exquisite book yet, collected by the wonderful Michaela Morgan:
This was a fun book to write for – in Alice in Poetry there are all the original poems in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, with the original illustrations by the incomparable Sir John Tenniel, alongside ‘answer’ poems written by modern poets.
Filled with excellent poems with a unique feel, this book will go down well with Alice fans of old, and introduce another generation of children to Lewis Carroll’s sublime and surreal wordplay.
Published by Macmillan and out already, you can get it here.
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.
Published by Macmillan and Out now!
Oh, did I mention I have two poems in it? I have two poems in it!
