Summary expansion
Ted Hughes was one of the greatest poets of the natural world, and no less so when he wrote for children. In this remarkable collection of poems he gives voice to some of the animals of our islands, creating characters that are distinct, funny and moving. The marvellous lightness of the poems will endear them to any child curious about animals they may or may not have met before (among them: snails, moles, cows, dogs and sticklebacks). This collection will alert them to the excitement and pleasure to be had from capturing the natural world in words. Like any true classic of English literature, it will enchant readers of all ages
