This is a great new collection of poetry, wide-ranging in both form and subject matter. Full of Brian Patten's wonderful wit and moments of beauty as in "Geraniums In The Snow": Like children snuggling down under a white duvet Slowly the red geraniums Vanish under the snow. It is brilliantly complemented by Chris Riddell's illustrations.
