Synopsis

A beautiful paperback edition of Charles Causley's Collected Poems for Children with a foreword by poet Roger McGough and illustrated with line art by John Lawrence. This Macmillan Classics edition is a special gift to treasure, and the perfect start to a lifelong love of poetry.

The poems in this collection were chosen and arranged the author. They feature a variety of subjects from funny to sad and seasons to fables – great to read aloud together.

To illustrate this book, John travelled to Cornwall to meet Charles Causley. If you look carefully you will find many references to Cornwall and its history and traditions throughout the book.
