Product description

Who is Charles Causley? He was a poet – a brilliant poet, but not one of the supremely famous ones. So don’t feel bad if you’ve never heard of him. Yet he was called ‘the greatest Poet Laureate we never had’. He was praised by all the great poets of his day, including Ted Hughes, Philip Larkin and Seamus Heaney. And he was noted for his simple and direct style – which makes him a great first port of call for your poetry studies. Not only is his work really easy to read and highly original. It’s also, rather beautifully, strongly linked to British folklore – especially that of Causley’s native Cornwall. So if you want poems that speak directly to your soul in a strong yet simple voice, look no further. You’ve found them.

  • A wonderful collection of children’s poems by a master poet
  • Beautifully illustrated hardback introduced by Roger McGough
  • Charles Causley was known for his simplicity and originality
  • He was intensely popular among other poets and the public

“Church bells ought to greet the arrival of Causley’s Collected Poems for Children, it is so plum-pudding-rich in delight.” Children’s Books History Society

“Before I was made Poet Laureate, I was asked to name my choice of the best poet for the job. Without hesitation I named Charles Causley – this marvelously resourceful, original poet.” Ted Hughes

Supplied as a pack of 30 copies.
