In the Land of the Giants : Selected Children's Poems, Paperback / softback Book

In the Land of the Giants : Selected Children's Poems Paperback / softback

Part of the Children's Poetry Library series

Paperback / softback


Winner of the CLPE Poetry AwardGeorge Szirtes' children's poems comprise riddles, mysteries and parables, strange encounters, cautionary tales, and meditations on just about everything under the sun - from the sea's hands to the wind's face.

All Szirtes' technical virtuosity is on display, the music, rhyme and cadence fusing together with an Eastern European sensibility to provide a unique collection that will be treasured by all children and not a few adults. This generous new selection displays wit and warm good humour with a hint of the absurd.

Also included are a series of translations of children's poems from Hungary including works by Sandor Weoeres and Zoltan Zelk.
