Review quote

One of our most popular writers - the champion for every bored, overdrilled, tested-to-tears pupil in the land * The Times * I think poetry for children needs to be saved from the cold dissection of right and wrong answers and put back into rooms and halls full of wonder, compassion, haunting, laughter, music and rhythm. We need to hear its many cultures, many voices, many sounds. This is about wide and diverse participation. Diverse verse for all! * Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 2007-2009 * One of our most popular writers - the champion for every bored, overdrilled, tested-to-tears pupil in the land * The Times * Michael Rosen is a poet with a superb ear for the rhythms of language * Guardian *
