"Old masters" such as William Wadsworth Longfellow and Lewis Carroll are paired with great twentieth century poets such as W.H. Auden & Roald Dahl. Contemporary poets such as Tony Mitton & Kevin Crossley-Holland (who introduces each poem) are featured as well. A one-of-a-kind anthology for every child's bookshelf.
