This is an anthology of over fifty classic children's poems, read by some of our finest actors. Full of fun, excitement and magic, the poems in this collection are guaranteed to spark the imagination and open up a world of wonder. There are animal poems ("The Duck and the Kangaroo", "Goosie Goosie Gander" and "How Doth the Little Crocodile"), nonsense poems ("The Quangle Wangle's Hat", "The Dong With the Luminous Nose" and "Jabberwocky"), nursery rhymes ("Hey Diddle Diddle", "One Potato") and lullabies ("Hush Little Baby") - not to mention a wealth of humorous verse. Favourites from authors such as Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll and Robert Louis Stevenson are all here, as well as less familiar but nonetheless hugely entertaining poems such as "The Camel's Complaint" and "The Elephant" and "The Force of Habit". Vividly read by Alex Jennings, Emilia Fox, Geoffrey Palmer and Julia McKenzie, these delightful poems will appeal to children of all ages.
