Top ten children's poetry books

John Hegley's latest collection of poems for children is I Am a Poetato: An A-Z of Poems About People, Pets, and Other Creatures.

He named his top ten children's poetry books for the Guardian. One title on the list:
The Dangerous Journey by Tove Jansson

Lovely palette and very lively balette of language. Stories for girls and boys and Moomins of all ages.

Bob quite agreed. 'A mightful fress! Hite quorribly foncusing! Whoever's glaying pames with us, they're linning and we're wusing.'
Read about the other titles on the list.
