A beautiful paperback edition of Charles Causley’s Collected Poems for Children with a foreword by Roger McGough and illustrated with line art by John Lawrence.
This Macmillan Classics edition is truly a special gift to treasure. The poems in this collection were chosen and arranged by the author. They feature as great a variety of subject and tone and place as any reader could wish for. To illustrate this book, John travelled to Cornwall to meet Charles Causley.
If you look carefully you will find many references to Cornwall and its history and traditions throughout the book.
‘Church bells ought to greet the arrival of Causley’s Collected Poems for Children . . . it is so plum-pudding-rich in delight’
