Poetry Box noticeboard: Gecko Press posts some of my favourite children’s poetrybooks

You can find my list here

My new book Groovy Fish is in debt to all of these! I am inspired by the way these poets play – especially with sound. I am sparked by their leaping imaginations and their engagements with the world we live in. Characters and places come to life. Sometimes a poem is only a few lines but it sings in your ear or heart like a starry universe.

These poets show that poetry is the perfect playground for readers and writers whatever age you are.

Thanks Gecko Press for inviting me to do this.
