About the book: This collection from award winning poet, Rachel Rooney, includes a wide range of poems many of which concern the subject of poetry itself. The selection has a wide variety of poetic forms; from visual poems and riddles to narrative poems and sonnets. The highly accessible subject matter includes myth, folktale and cultural references alongside relatable topics such as pets and school.
Reasons for Selection: This debut collection had an outstanding reception on its publication in 2011: it was the Poetry Book Society children’s choice, won the CLPE Poetry Award and was long-listed for the Carnegie Medal.
The 54 poems in this award winning collection offer breadth of form and subject matter and also depth of meaning. From humorous and engaging poems that explore word play and poem structure to reflective poems that offer opportunities to explore big ideas such as growing up and time, this compilation has a wide range of both accessibility and challenge.
