A little of my writing is included in ....
The Elements in Poetry: Compiled by Andrew Fusek Peters and published by Evans Brothers Limited
in hardback and paperback editions
“Four glorious full colour anthologies about Earth, Air, Fire and Water from the best of our contemporary and classic poets.”
“Links well into curriculum work for Key Stage One and Key Stage Two.”
Shortlisted for the British Book Design & Production Awards
"The author has achieved the unusual feat of combining science and poetry. These beautifully illustrated books support topic work and stimulate creative writing, with links to other subjects."
"Four handsome hardcover volumes, each dedicated to the four main elements, created by a daring anthologist who is not afraid to mix and match seemingly incompatible 'poetic' elements. So the likes of Shakespeare, Hardy and Garcia Lorca keep company with Robert Frost and William Wordsworth, together with a whole host of regular contributors to recent children's anthologies. Exploring the elements through a series of funny, thoughtful, very individual but always strongly-linked poems, these poems are a celebration of the world around us. Both interesting and informative, their classroom value will be enormous."
