Come on a safari of the imagination with this unique, beautifully presented collection of poems from all over the Commonwealth, from tiny islands of the Caribbean to the vast continents of Australia and India.This anthology for young people aged ten to fourteen reflects the many different peoples, landscapes, climates, songs and languages of the Commonwealth, in poems from unknown authors (including children), anonymous writers and famous authors - Seamus Heaney, Derek Walcott - one from each Commonwealth country.There is a fascinating selection of facts and figures on each country. Did you know that Malaysia has the world's only revolving monarchy? Or that Tuvalu in the Pacific Ocean has the smallest number of inhabitants (excluding the Vatican City) amongst independent nations?Each section is introduced with richly coloured maps. It is published in association with the Scottish Poetry Library, this will be a great classroom resource (backed up by information on the Scottish Poetry Library website) but also a compilation that poetry lovers of all ages will enjoy.
