"They stepped into the poem and disappeared forever."--George Barker
The NEW Oxford Treasury of Children's Poems is a perfect introduction to the magic world of poetry. There is something here to please everyone. Familiar, well-loved poems, and many new surprises, are brought together in a beautiful illustrated collection that is full of Jumblies and dragons; wise old women and baby brothers; dogs, horses, and cats that howl at the moon. There are trains and talking tables; schools and scary houses; moms, dads, bears, and crocodiles. The choice of poets is wide-ranging, from Robert Louis Stevenson on dreams and Rudyard Kipling's "The Way through the Woods," to June Crebbin's ode to a dad whose "face looks sort of lonely/Without its fuzzy beard." There is a poem from Frank Asch about sunflakes--"We could go sleighing/in the middle of July"--and one from Lewis Carroll about a cheerful crocodile who "welcomes little fishes in,/With gently smiling jaws." Poems by W. B. Yeats; Edward Lear; Alfred, Lord Tennyson; A. E. Housman; and W. H. Auden fill out this delightful collection that is a companion to The Oxford Treasury of Children's Poems, one of OUP's most successful poetry books for children. Throughout the book, charming color illustrations complement the liveliness and atmosphere of the poems.
