A celebration of love from the author and illustrator of Goth Girl, Ottoline and the Cloud Horse Chronicles, Poems to Fall in Love With sees Chris Riddell select and illustrate his very favourite classic and modern poems about love.

This beautifully illustrated collection explores love in all its guises, from silent admiration through passion to tearful resignation. These poems speak of the universal experiences of the heart and are brought to life with Chris's exquisite, intricate artwork.

This perfect gift, this book features famous poems, old and new, and a few surprises. Classic verses sit alongside the modern to create the ultimate collection. Includes poems from Neil Gaiman, Nikita Gill, Carol Ann Duffy, E. E. Cummings, Shakespeare, Leonard Cohen, Derek Walcott, Hollie McNish, Kae Tempest, John Betjeman and Roger McGough and many more.

Enjoy more poetry with Chris's Poems to Live Your Life By, one of the Bookseller's best poetry books of the last twenty-five years.

This is a stupendously well-chosen, feelgood anthology in which even feel-bad poems feel good. This little book is a must-have, with poems that will make you feel more alive.
A wonderful gift for a literate teenager, it will also be enjoyed by many others unsure how to approach poetry.
[Riddell] shows how poetry gives meaning to all our lives, from childhood through to old age.
