Description: This anthology of poems aims to form the cornerstone of a lifetime's enjoyment of poetry. Sparks fly in the sounds, rhythms and stories and in the surprises and jokes that spring up.
Synopsis: This is an anthology that aims to do two things: to set fire to the imagination and to bring together a collection of memorable poems. What we will discover is that the two are inextricably linked. We only have to "remember, remember the 5th of November" to see a dark night filled with fireworks and bonfires. And in their many different ways - through their sounds, rhythms, stories, surprises and jokes - these poems should set the fireworks crackling in our own heads. Michael Morpurgo has brought together poems by writers as diverse as Spike Milligan and Louis MacNeice, Stevie Smith and John Lennon, Jo Shapcott and Lewis Carroll. Once read, they will not be forgotten and should form the foundation to a fund of writing and a habit of remembering that throughout life should enrich everyday experience of the world.
