Four Cheers for Candlestick Children’s Poetry!

Four Cheers for Candlestick Children’s Poetry!

Published on Wednesday 12 March 2014

Candlestick Press is delighted to launch four new titles in our children’s range, suitable for children up to the age of eleven. We hope they will delight and entertain the children, grandchildren, godchildren, nephews and nieces in your life, and will brighten many a bookshelf or bedside table with poems about dragons, pirates, slugs and spiders, mad teachers, nonny-birds and cows in hotel lifts. Just the thing to give to thoughtful children also blessed with a great sense of humour (we sat pondering and chortling our way through the poems as we researched these titles).

Poets include Allan Ahlberg, Ogden Nash, Carol Ann Duffy, Spike Milligan, John Hegley, Pauline Clarke and Christina Rossetti.

All titles RRP £4.95, including colourful envelope, bookmark and a fun character sticker for the little ones to stick on their lunchbox, jumper or wherever else they want to pop it!
