An exclusive first look inside Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright! An Animal Poem For Every Day of the Year

This September – exactly three months from today, in fact – we are very proud to be publishing, in partnership with the National Trust, Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright! An Animal Poem for Every Day of the Year, illustrated by Britta Teckentrup and collected by Fiona Waters.

The follow-up to our highly-acclaimed, multi-award-winning collection, I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree: A Nature Poem for Every Day of the Year, Tiger, Tiger is a lavishly illustrated gift book treasury of 366 animal poems – one for every day of the year – ranging from unforgettable classics to contemporary works from around the world, including poetry in translation.

And today, we are delighted to share a very first look inside the book.

The spectacular range of poems for children in Tiger, Tiger includes work by Roger McGough, William Blake, Dick King-Smith, Ted Hughes, Grace Nichols, Lewis Carroll, Christina Rossetti, and Emily Dickinson. Britta Teckentrup’s breathtaking illustrations bring together all the richness and wonder of the animal kingdom, making this poetry anthology a perfect gift that will be treasured by generations.
