From well-loved poets, including Maya Angelou, Wendy Cope, Lucille Clifton and Christina Rossetti, to newer voices such as Amanda Gorman, Yrsa-Daley Ward and Ada Limon, this outstanding collection from talented anthologist Ella Risbridger has poems for every mood and every moment. Expertly curated by Ella Risbridger and sublimely illustrated by Anna Shepeta, this sumptuous anthology of inspiring verse from a host of seminal female poets includes work by Christina Rossetti, Maya Angelou, Amanda Gorman and many more. She encourages readers to follow in her footsteps and adore poetry, to re-read poems again and again, and find something new each time, and to even make anthologies of their own. You'll find poems about Rosa Parks, Boudicca, Harriet Tubman, colonisation, slavery, star gazing, the weather, the seasons, colours, the ocean, climate change, animals and more!

From well-loved poets, including Maya Angelou, Wendy Cope, Lucille Clifton and Christina Rossetti, to newer voices such as Amanda Gorman, Yrsa-Daley Ward and Amineh Abou Kerech, this collection from anthologist Ella Risbridger has poems for every mood and every moment. What really amazes me, is that with some of the poems together with the illustrations, I can almost smell the past, others I can imagine the future or others make me feel heavily grounded on my feet here in the present.

As a DJ might have to find the perfect track to get everyone onto the dance floor, this is our metaphorical 'banger' to kick off the poetry party!

From well-loved poets, including Maya Angelou, Wendy Cope, Lucille Clifton and Christina Rossetti, to newer voices such as Amanda Gorman, Yrsa Daley-Ward and Ada Limon, this outstanding collection from talented anthologist Ella Risbridger has poems for every mood and every moment. The absolutely stunning artwork leaps out at you from the bookshelf and the end papers are filled with carefully considered doodles representing many of the 'characters' from within the book. With sumptuous finishes including cloth binding, full colour illustrations throughout, textured paper jacket, ribbon marker, and head and tail bands.Ella’s skilful selection includes poems to make you think, poems to make you hope and poems that might just make you act, too.

Think of these poems not like still pictures, but more like doors: things you can push on, and that will open on to other things. She sheds light on the theory that many poems written by 'Anon' or 'Anonymous' in times past were most likely written by women - I had never considered this! Within her introduction, she tells us of the origin of her love of poetry after her beloved Granny had shared a poetry book with her when she was a young child. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book, as the breathtaking cover artwork by Anna Shepeta caught my eye months ago! Covering a range of emotions and capturing a number of important ‘life’ moments, each of the poems in this collection will make as a strong an impact on readers of all ages.Ella's selection is wide-ranging but accessible and will appeal to poetry lovers both young and old alike. Taking poetry as a filter for art and personal expression, readers are encouraged what they love about a poem they have read, who wrote it, why, why did it strike a chord. As with many children's picture books, this is absolutely the sum parts of the curator, the poems and the illustrations.

When she’s not creating magical art, Anna likes to bake rainbow biscuits and watch detective series. Ella’s selection is wide-ranging but accessible and will appeal to poetry lovers both young and old alike. This is the third in the Nosy Crow series of their big and beautiful poetry anthologies (see below for links) and it is a glorious celebration of female poetry writing. Nikita Gill's words are absolutely a pure delight as a segue way to remind the reader that men, women, and 'everyone in-between' are to be treated equally. The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “Poetry always needs champions and Ella Risbridger is a modern-day Boudicca.From well-loved poets, including Maya Angelou, Wendy Cope, Lucille Clifton and Christina Rossetti, to newer voices such as Amanda Gorman, Yrsa Daley-Ward and Ada Limón, this outstanding collection from talented anthologist Ella Risbridger has poems for every mood and every moment.
