Because a Fire Was in My Head Paperback / softback

Part of the Faber Children's Classics series


A wonderful anthology of poems to set fire to the imagination. We only have to 'remember, remember the 5th of November' to see a dark night filled with fireworks and bonfires.

In their many different ways - through their sounds, rhythms, stories, surprises and jokes - these poems will set the fireworks crackling in our own heads. Michael Morpurgo has brought together poems by writers as diverse as Spike Milligan and Louis MacNeice, Stevie Smith and John Lennon, Jo Shapcott and Lewis Carroll.

Once read, they won't be forgotten - some even beg to be learned by heart.

This is anthology will form the cornerstone to a lifetime's enjoyment of poetry.
