Among the 200 poems in this collection are many of the most memorable in English, such as John Masefield’s Sea-Fever, TS Eliot’s Journey of the Magi and Edward Lear’s The Owl and the Pussy-cat; but there are also many less well-known works to discover. The poems are arranged by theme, including Childhood and Youth, Poems to Read Aloud and Magic and Mystery, the pages of each section decorated by Isabelle Brent in different colours.
Ideal for helping with school projects, the Eyewitness series explores the natural world and human history.
