About the book: Moon Juice, the debut poetry anthology by Kate Wakeling, won the CLiPPA award in 2017 and was nominated for the Carnegie Medal in 2018. The poems in this collection introduce curious characters like Hamster Man and Skig the warrior/worrier and whisk you off to far away places from Indonesia and to the moon. They range from the curious to hilarious as well as thought provoking and melancholy.
Reasons for selection: This collection contains poems which vary in style, tone and subject matter. There are poems which will relate to everyday experiences as well as those which will transport the reader to other worlds. The poems range from those that will make the reader laugh out loud to poems which give voice to difficult emotions. Kate Wakeling’s ability to draw on taut rhythm and neat alliteration as well as skilfully composed word play make these poems a delight to read aloud and perform.
