Edited by Margaret Connolly & Natalie Jane Prior
This hardback book is a treasury of children’s poetry from contemporary Australian poets and illustrators, indexed by theme. From fast and furious race cars (“Pistons pump, hot wheels spin. Black smoke swirls. Who will win?”) to the gentle title image (“A boat of stars came down tonight, and sailed around my bed”), there’s something here for everyone. Inspiring, enchanting and fun.
