The Booktime Book of Fantastic First Poems The Booktime Book of Fantastic First Poems

Edited by June Crebbin

Poets ranging from Robert Louis Stevenson to John Agard, and Roger McGough to Eleanor Farjeon, are featured in each of the themed sections, which are devoted to subjects such as animals, night time, food and nonsense verse.


Each section is beautifully illustrated by a different person - Nick Sharratt’s distinctive artwork appears alongside nonsense poems and Tony Ross illustrates the food poems with his usual humorous touch.


Memorable poems and eye-catching artwork make this an ideal book for sharing in the classroom or at home. This book is a shorter version of The Puffin Book of Fantastic First Poems which has lots more poems for you to enjoy.
