About the Book

100 poems by 100 of the major children’s poets of the twentieth century compiled by John Foster, an established and well-known anthologist and poet in his own right.

This collection provides a substantial volume of poems by the most significant children’s poets of the twentieth century and is sure to establish itself as a standard collection that will sell steadily for many years. The book contains poems by women poets, black writers and many representatives from countries other than Britain where the book will sell. There is an index of themes as well as indexes of authors, titles and first lines, so that teachers will find it tremendously useful and easy to use as reference. There is also a biographical section at the end of the book, giving brief biographies of the poets. The line illustrations throughout the book add quality and depth to the poems and are by distinguished children’s illustrators.
