Poems and illustrations by
A wide-ranging new collection from an exciting poet, encompassing the natural world, city life, family and belonging – suffused with warmth and empathy.
Look out for the tree that saved a town; dip your toe in the Milky Way; sing the City Seed Song; come home to Belonging Street … Mandy Coe joins our poetry list with an eagerly-awaited second collection of poems for children. She writes: “Much of the book is a quest, a search for a sense of belonging, whether the searcher is a child, a tree-that-walks, the colour grey, or a butterfly … It was wonderful to be both illustrator and writer, creating pictures full of poetry and poems full of pictures.”
In Praise of Mandy Coe...
