Inspire young children to move from nursery rhymes to serious (but not solemn!) verse with this burgeoning collection that includes poems by Lewis Carroll, Christina Rossetti, Shakespeare, and many others. The illustrations reflect the vitality of the verses. Edward Blishen, who compiled the anthology, was a teacher for 15 years, and the volume has been spectacularly illustrated by Brian Wildsmith.
