Something Beginning with P

Something Beginning with P ed. by Seamus Cashman (O'Brien Press, 2008)

EUR 14.99 (Paperback)
Standard P&P charges may apply

'a sumptuous collection of new work by Irish poets. Like all the best anthologies, it offers poems that extend one's definition of what the art can do, especially for children nine years old and upward... This book should be in all schools where English (and Irish) is spoken. It is a place where poets and children meet, with no condescension from the former. Buy two copies -- one will be stolen' - Times Educational Supplement
