An anthology of poems and illustrations by widely published author, Karen Little. For the first time this collection brings together a selection of her poetry and distinctive monochrome illustrations.
Ten poems - ten illustrations - twenty precious jewels, flashing with danger and colour. The poems alone would be worth the price, as would the wild monochrome illustrations. Karen Little is the most exciting voice of this generation, and this collection is (or ought to be!) unmissable. Is Hairless Me Breathless the best poem published this year? Buy this volume, and then when her books are classics and are being studied at universities, you'll be able to show off your first edition, and your impeccable taste. I feel genuinely lucky to be among those 'in the know' about Karen's work now. - Cathy Bryant is Editor of Best of Manchester Poets and winner of 22 writing awards.
