Riddell offers a stylish pick ’n’ mix for all tastes and his graceful illustrations enhance this volume, sometimes stretching a single poem out over three or four pages.

(Chris Riddell is) a life-long lover of poetry and in this beautiful volume, (...) he shows how poetry gives meaning to all our lives, from childhood through to old age. This collection is aimed at younger readers but people of all ages will appreciate the beauty of poems like Shelley’s “The Indian Serenade”, Byron’s “She Walks in Beauty” and “La Belle Dame Sans Merci” by Keats
