    Excellent, and different, selection

    Posted by Roger Feesey on 11th Sep 2021

    Really good concept, with a good selection of poems. Nice line drawings to illustrate each page. Only wish SPCK had been more adventurous and produced it in a larger, maybe hardback, size and in colour. It would be a keepsake book enjoyed every year at Christmas if they had done.
