Press Reviews

' ... The poems leap from the page and, what is more, most of them beg to be read aloud. It is vital that the luscious sounds be sounded out and heard. The book is a delightful mix of traditional and contemporary verses. ... there is much to be enjoyed by children and adults south of the border and, indeed, in any other English speaking part of the world.' Journal of the English Speaking Board
