"A classic anthology of creative writing by a 'guardian spirit of the land and language.' (Seamus Heaney) 'In a series of chapters built round poems by a number of writers including himself... [Ted Hughes] explores, colourfully and intensively, themes such as 'Capturing Animals', 'Wind and Weather' and 'Writing about People'. The purpose throughout is to lead on, via a discussion of the poems (which he does with riveting skill) to some direct encouragement to the children to think and write for themselves.
