Overview

This wonderfully eclectic anthology brings together poems passed from mouth to mouth, generation to generation, from all over the world: Russia, India, Jamaica, Vietnam... There are schoolyard chants, sea shanties, work-songs, riddles, spells and curses, and much, much more. It's a feast of spoken magic served up on page after mouthwatering page.
