A beautifully illustrated anthology of classic and contemporary narrative poems--each introduced by bestselling author Kevin Crossley-Holland. A perfect introduction to the magical world of poetry.

This stunning, fully-illustrated collection offers a dazzling array of narrative poems----each of which tells an unforgettable tale. Readers will find poems to suit every taste---from stirring, heroic verses to magical fables, and from cautionary tales to humorous tongue-twisters. "Old masters" such as William Wadsworth Longfellow and Lewis Carroll are paired with great twentieth century poets such as W.H. Auden & Roald Dahl. Contemporary poets such as Tony Mitton & Kevin Crossley-Holland (who introduces each poem) are featured as well. A one-of-a-kind anthology for every child's bookshelf.
