About this deal

Ella’s selection is wide-ranging but accessible and will appeal to poetry lovers both young and old alike. It was named a Book Of The Year 2019 by half a dozen publications, including The Times, The Daily Mail, and The Observer. As a DJ might have to find the perfect track to get everyone onto the dance floor, this is our metaphorical 'banger' to kick off the poetry party! Covering a range of emotions and capturing a number of important ‘life’ moments, each of the poems in this collection will make as a strong an impact on readers of all ages.

Think of these poems not like still pictures, but more like doors: things you can push on, and that will open on to other things. You'll find poems about Rosa Parks, Boudicca, Harriet Tubman, colonisation, slavery, star gazing, the weather, the seasons, colours, the ocean, climate change, animals and more! A forceful, passionate and uplifting collection of poems by women and girls that is guaranteed to inspire, delight and empower. This is the third in the Nosy Crow series of their big and beautiful poetry anthologies (see below for links) and it is a glorious celebration of female poetry writing. From well-loved poets, including Maya Angelou, Wendy Cope, Lucille Clifton and Christina Rossetti, to newer voices such as Amanda Gorman, Yrsa-Daley Ward and Amineh Abou Kerech, this collection from anthologist Ella Risbridger has poems for every mood and every moment.Nosy Crow publish some beautiful children's books designed to be treasured for a lifetime and this is no exception. Nikita Gill's words are absolutely a pure delight as a segue way to remind the reader that men, women, and 'everyone in-between' are to be treated equally. She encourages readers to follow in her footsteps and adore poetry, to re-read poems again and again, and find something new each time, and to even make anthologies of their own.

Previous The Royal Rebel : The Life of Suffragette Princess Sophia Duleep Singh by Bali Rai, illustrated by Rachael Dean Next Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.I first came across this anthology's curator, author Ella Risbridger, last year due to the success of her first kids middle grade book 'The Secret Detectives' (also published by Nosy Crow). She goes on to paint a picture of the oppression of women and their creative talents, and especially their lack of equal rights to men. The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “Poetry always needs champions and Ella Risbridger is a modern-day Boudicca. She sheds light on the theory that many poems written by 'Anon' or 'Anonymous' in times past were most likely written by women - I had never considered this! As with many children's picture books, this is absolutely the sum parts of the curator, the poems and the illustrations.
