This book celebrates the last century of poetry written for children by collecting some of the most genre-representative classic and contemporary verses in one volume. The twentieth century has seen an explosion in the number of poets writing for children, and in the amount of accessible poetry available to them. This collection is arranged thematically. From Rudyard Kipling to Charles Causley, from Ogden Nash to Michael Rosen, the style and subject matter of the selections ranges dramatically. Familiar, popular poems alternate with some less well-known rhymes, grouped together under such headings as childhood, war, animals and mystery. In One Hundred Years of Poetry for Children, Michael Harrison and Christopher Stuart-Clark have compiled a treasure trove of the best children's poems from all over the English-speaking world.
