100 Best Poems for Children is a unique treasure trove. From the hundreds of poems originally chosen by children themselves, Roger McGough has selected an irresistible top one hundred every child should have.

Arranged alphabetically, this glorious collection offers a fantastic voyage of discovery. Here you'll find Dr Seuss rubbing shoulders with Shakespeare, Roald Dahl sharing a page with Walter de la Mare, and Michael Rosen sitting next to Christina Rossetti. With a wealth of contemporary and classic verse, there is something for everyone.

'As well as the famous authors, this book features a poem written by Jasmine Grayling, who won a competition at the age of 8 to have her poem printed in it. Beautifully written, I see good things in the future for this talented young individual.'
