Story poems have always fascinated young readers, and in this comprehensive collection old favorites like The Owl and the Pussycat and Annabel Lee are joined by tales in verse from modern poets like Ray Bradbury and Adrian Mitchell. There is something for every taste among the 66 poems of this anthology. Stevie Smith’s Fairy Story takes us on a magical trip through an enchanted forest. The Hairy Toe is a lights-out, under-the-covers tale to chill you to the bone. Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky is here, and so is Edward Lear’s The Pelican Chorus, plus dozens of other classic story poems.
