    DescriptionThis beautifully illustrated anthology will introduce children to some of the best-loved poems in the English language. The selection includes gems drawn from five centuries of poetry, from Shakespeare and his contemporaries to poets writing today. With almost one hundred poems to choose from, including such favourites as 'The Lady of Shalott', 'Kubla Khan', and 'The Night Mail', and with contributions from Shelley, Blake, Walt Whitman, Lewis Carroll, Philip Larkin, and Roger McGough among many others, this is truly a collection to treasure for a lifetime.

    Author Information
    Michael Harrison was born and educated in Oxford. After living in Queensland, Australia, Hartlepool and London, he has now returned to live, teach, and write in Oxford. Michael once commented, 'Poetry should be like wholemeal bread and honey: immediate pleasure but with some roughage working its way through the system.' Christopher Stuart-Clark has worked extensively with Michael Harrison on anthologies of poetry for Oxford Children's Books. He lives in Oxfordshire.
