In a little over a month, we will be publishing our new poetry collection, Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright! An Animal Poem For Every Day of the Year, illustrated by Britta Teckentrup and with poems collected by Fiona Waters – a gorgeously illustrated collection of 366 animal poems, one for every day of the year.
And today we’re delighted to share our trailer for the book – you can watch it below.
The ambitious sequel to our award-winning, highly-acclaimed first poetry collection, I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree: A Nature Poem For Every Day of the Year, Tiger, Tiger ranges from unforgettable classics to contemporary works from around the world, including in translation. The spectacular range of poems for children includes work by William Blake, Dick King-Smith, Ted Hughes, Grace Nicols, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti – and is complemented by Britta Teckentrup’s breathtaking illustrations, which bring together all the richness and wonder of the animal kingdom.
