Description

I very much enjoyed reading her introduction and afterword where the reader will find much encouragement for equality and acceptance of women (including those who identify as female) and the much-needed level pegging of poetry along side fiction and non-fiction literature. What Ella Risbridger had to say: “I hope the poems in this book light your way to all sorts of things. From well-loved poets, including Maya Angelou, Wendy Cope, Lucille Clifton and Christina Rossetti, to newer voices such as Amanda Gorman, Yrsa Daley-Ward and Ada Limón, this outstanding collection from talented anthologist Ella Risbridger has poems for every mood and every moment. Ella’s selection is wide-ranging but accessible and will appeal to poetry lovers both young and old alike. I defy anyone to read this poetry collection without feeling lighter, brighter and all fired up to conquer the world.

As a DJ might have to find the perfect track to get everyone onto the dance floor, this is our metaphorical 'banger' to kick off the poetry party!Nosy Crow publish some beautiful children's books designed to be treasured for a lifetime and this is no exception. Expertly curated by Ella Risbridger and sublimely illustrated by Anna Shepeta, this sumptuous anthology of inspiring verse from a host of seminal female poets includes work by Christina Rossetti, Maya Angelou, Amanda Gorman and many more.

Nikita Gill's words are absolutely a pure delight as a segue way to remind the reader that men, women, and 'everyone in-between' are to be treated equally. Ella Risbridger’s collection of old and new poems has been carefully chosen to grow a love of poetry in all reader’s hearts while Anna Shepta’s illustrations capture the mood of each perfectly. This is the third in the Nosy Crow series of their big and beautiful poetry anthologies (see below for links) and it is a glorious celebration of female poetry writing. Within her introduction, she tells us of the origin of her love of poetry after her beloved Granny had shared a poetry book with her when she was a young child.I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book, as the breathtaking cover artwork by Anna Shepeta caught my eye months ago! I first came across this anthology's curator, author Ella Risbridger, last year due to the success of her first kids middle grade book 'The Secret Detectives' (also published by Nosy Crow). Ella’s skilful selection includes poems to make you think, poems to make you hope and poems that might just make you act, too.
