Winner of the CLPE Poetry Award George Szirtes' children's poems comprise riddles, mysteries and parables, strange encounters, cautionary tales, and meditations on just about everything under the sun - from the sea's hands to the wind's face.
All Szirtes' technical virtuosity is on display, the music, rhyme and cadence fusing together with an Eastern European sensibility to provide a unique collection that will be treasured by all children and not a few adults. This generous new selection displays wit and warm good humour with a hint of the absurd.
Also included are a series of translations of children's poems from Hungary including works by Sandor Weores and Zoltan Zelk.
