101 Poems for Children: A Laureate's Choice is a stunning collection of classic and modern verse chosen by the 2009-2019 Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy. Full of gorgeous black and white artwork from the multi-award-winning illustrator Emily Gravett, this book is a delight for children of all ages and is a pleasure to read aloud for everyone in the family to enjoy.

This fantastic collection is the perfect introduction to poetry for children, featuring a range of poems both new and familiar and packed with delights to return to again and again. Classic poems such as 'The Owl and the Pussycat' by Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll's 'Jabberwocky' feature alongside contemporary verse, such as Edwin Morgan's 'The Loch Ness Monster's Song' and 'Balloons' by Sylvia Plath.

With a gorgeous cloth-bound cover, this beautiful hardback edition is published to celebrate the end of Duffy's Laureateship and is the perfect gift for any young poetry lover, or any child yet to discover its delights.


AUTHOR:

Carol Ann Duffy lives in Manchester, where she is Professor and Creative Director of the Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University. She has written for both children and adults, and her poetry has received many awards, including the Signal Prize for Children's Verse, the Whitbread, Forward and T. S. Eliot Prizes, and the Lannan and E. M. Forster Prize in America. She was appointed Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom in 2009. In 2011 The Bees won the Costa Poetry Award, and in 2012 she won the PEN Pinter Prize. She was made a DBE in the 2015 New Year Honours list.

Emily Gravett has a rare talent for creating exceptional books for children. The winner of two CILIP Kate Greenaway Medals, her skill and wit are second to none. Emily first sprang into the limelight with the ground-breaking Wolves in 2005, which has been followed by such modern classics as Meerkat Mail, Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears, Monkey and Me and Again!, as well as Tidy and Old Hat. Each book is unique and different from the last - and each features endearing, beautifully drawn characters that touch the heart and tickle the funny bone. Emily lives in Brighton with her family.
