Poetry for children

In addition to my seven books of poetry for adults, I have also published two collections of poetry for children, both of which can be found in second-hand bookshops and online booksellers.

Secrets, A Collection of Poems from Hidden Worlds, The Bodley Head, 1995 (Winner of the Signal Award for Poetry)

Snollygoster, Scholastic Press, 2001

Here are some of the poems from these two collections for children:
