80 sees eighty favourite poems from one of the nation’s best-loved poets. Roger McGough, brought together for the first time in a hugely enjoyable new volume. Poems include The Power of Poets, Apostrophe, Snuggles, Teapet, Trees Are Great and The Rolling Meatball.
Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always inventive and often unexpected, the enormous variety of poems will never cease to amaze and delight children of all ages. 80 is a wonderful collection, truly with something for everyone, to be enjoyed again and again, read together or independently, at home or in a classroom.
Published around National Poetry Day and in celebration on McGough’s 80th birthday, 80 marks both the long and successful career of a much-loved poet, and an opportunity to engage a whole new generation with the increasingly popular, accessible and fresh face of poetry.
