This is the booklaunch for our newest children’s poetry collection: “Cloud Soup” by Kate Wakeling, illustrated by Elīna Brasliņa. The event will be hosted by publisher Emma Wright, and it will feature some poems, some illustrations, and a Q&A.
N.B. The book is aimed at children, but this launch is to celebrate the creators so it’s not specifically pitched at kids.
You can pre-order a copy of the book here.
The book’s blurb: Bake a weird cake, pay a visit to the Deep, and get some inspiration for your very own word hoard! Anything is possible in the world of Cloud Soup, Kate Wakeling’s breathlessly imaginative collection of poems for children.
Quieter poems sit alongside riotously funny ones in this sequel to Moon Juice, the winner of the 2017 CLiPPA prize for Best Children’s Poetry Book. Readers are encouraged to look more closely at clouds, water, dust and trees, and to reflect on the knottier areas of life. Aimed at children aged 9+.
