Editor reviews

Collected here are 60 comical and entertaining poems for those young in age or those young at heart. Featured along with silly wordplay poems like "The Jumblies" and "Zoe's Ear-rings" and the adventuresome "The Ballad of Sir Patrcik Spens", is Robert Browning's humorous version of the "Pied Piper of Hamelin". Veteran narrators Anton Lesser, Anne Harvey, and Katinka Wolf are tasked with the performance and give these poems an enchanting musicality that is sure to keep listeners coming back for repeated listens.

Summary

Here are 60 of the finest and most entertaining poems for younger listeners. There are nonsense poems ("The Jumblies"), classic animal poems ("The Snail"), stories of adventure ("The Ballad of Sir Patrick Spens") and Robert Browning's classic tale of adults getting their come-uppance ("The Pied Pipe of Hamelin"). Modern poetry also makes its contribution with wordplay ("Zoe's Ear-rings") and images of nature ("Weathers"). Though principally aimed at eight to thirteen year olds, this is a collection to delight listeners young and old alike.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
