Synopsis

Axel Scheffler's delightful artwork brings to life these playful and easily accessible poems by Frantz Wittkamp, wonderfully adapted from German to English by national treasure Roger McGough.

There are lions and tigers and mice galore, not to mention a whole host of other bizarre and loveable creatures in this fully colour illustrated collection of short poems. Each four-line poem conjures a new scene or concept and their short length combined with the colourful detailed artwork makes this book ideal for introducing poetry to the very young.

Ranging from the curious to the witty, the touching to the joyful, and all exquisitely illustrated by award-winning Axel Scheffler, Fish Dream of Trees is the perfect book of poetry to share with children young and old. A beautiful hardback with jacket covered in shiny gold details, Fish Dream of Trees makes an excellent gift.
