Product Description

Winner of an English PEN Award

Open this book carefully: as soon as you do, the wind will blow you through the city. You will see magical things. You will roam down empty streets, you will travel on the metro – but you’ll have time to wonder about the world around you, and to take notice of the night, the rain, and the sea.

These poems focus on the everyday, small things around us – and they breathe new life into everything that children see around them. A plastic bag dreams of becoming a cloud, raindrops go on holiday to the sea, and hats fill up with thoughts. The book builds an immersive, tender world – and through its gentle sense of humour and striking images it teaches children to look closely at everything they come across.

Suitable for children aged 6+.
