* There is little that is as deeply satisfying than the apt poem. It's like chocolate for the soul. Except less fattening. It resolves the nervous system, captures the elusive experience of being alive so we may always have it and never lose it. Give your child an appetite for poems and they will never be bored -- Helena Bonham Carter On If Poems * This gorgeous and electrifying anthology should be on the shelf of every child in Britain -- Carol Ann Duffy * The iF anthology of poems - both beautiful and useful.
