Poetry for Young People…
Whether writing for children or adults, in poetry or prose, Terry McDonagh consistently finds the right balance: accessible but never too easy; charming but never sentimental; playful but never shallow; socio-critical but never finger-wagging. He ticks all the boxes but thinks and writes outside them. In this new collection for young people the poet never forgets the schoolboy he was ? Ian Watson,?author, poet and literary critic.
Terry McDonagh is an original and exciting voice in children?s poetry. In vibrant verse, he performs stories that plunge us into amusing, absurd and vulnerable aspects of the lives of young people. This latest collection is compulsive reading ? Niall de B?rca,?Irish, International storyteller.
