    How many of one's favourite poems are story poems? This is a wonderful collection of over sixty narratives in verse with thrilling tales, silly nonsense rhymes, tragic poems that will keep you in suspense, and funny, quirky poems that will delight over and over again. All the classic poems you would expect to see are here, such as 'Jabberwocky', 'The Pied Piper of Hamelin', 'The Highwayman. The Thunder-Shower. The lightning flashed, and lifted The lids of heaven apart, The fiery thunder rolled you All night long through my heart. From dreams of you at dawn I rose to the window ledge: The storm had passed away, The lake lapped on the sedge. Thank you to Rona Laycock for interviewing me about Interned at the Food Factory for Corinium Radio’s Writers’ Room programme in June, and giving me the opportunity to read poems from the book, as well as more recent work.
