My favourite children’s poetry books on

It’s like desert island discs but instead of discs, think poetry.

Over the past month or so Liz Brownlee’s PoetryRoundabout webzine has featured a series of children’s poets asked to give a selection of their favourite children’s poetry books.

I’m 12th in the series. Every poet is allowed 5-8 choices, one of which can be a book of poetry for adults, and one of which has to be their own book.

You can read my selections here.

Many thanks to Liz, it was a really fun question to ponder!
