Please Write Soon: The Unforgettable Story Of Two Cousins In World War II

There are no shortage of books detailing the harrowing events of WWII, but their importance and relevance for each new generation of readers – especially much younger readers – cannot be overstated. Told mostly through a series of letters between Solly and his Polish cousin Bernie, Please Write Soon is a simple but touching story of resilience, friendship and childhood innocence during wartime.

What is Poetry? The Essential Guide to Reading and Writing Poems

This is an invaluable handbook for readers, writers and teachers of poetry. Its unintimidating cover, large print, and sparse, jokey illustrations belie the well-devised content, which supports UK National Curriculum English at Key Stages 2 and 3 (children aged 7-14).

Jelly Boots Smelly Boots

Jelly Boots Smelly Boots is a new poetry collection from the vivid imagination of bestselling author and former children’s laureate Michael Rosen. The collection is packed full of poems of varying length, some only a few lines, others several pages long, and covers wildly differing themes, from school trips to dreams to food and family. There is even an ongoing poem that pops up at random intervals throughout the book introducing us to the many different dogs that seem to lurk ‘Down behind the Dustbin’.
