Dragons, castles and knights, mermaids, witches and magicians, ships on the high seas, journeys into mystery--they are all here, and more, in this new anthology of narrative verse for children. Story poems have always enchanted young readers, and in this comprehensive collection the old favorites like The Owl and the Pussycat and The Highwayman are joined by tales in verse from modern poets like Ray Bradbury and Adrian Mitchell. There's Stevie Smith's Fairy Story--a short trip through an enchanted forest. Or how about the traditional saga of The Hairy Toe--a lights-out, under-the-covers tale to chill you to the bone. Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky is here, and Edward Lear's The Pelican Chorus, plus scores of other classic story poems like La Belle Dame Sans Merci and Annabelle Lee. Illustrations by a variety of artist effectively highlight the text. The Oxford Book of Story Poems is a perfect choice for children, parents, teachers, and anyone who enjoys the great yarns of poetic literature.
