Reprint of children's anthology of NZ poetry


I'm really glad to see this gorgeous book back on the market. Reissued just last week, it is well timed for the perfect Christmas gift for families.

"An award-winning collection of the best New Zealand poems for children, edited by star New Zealand poet Paula Green and illustrated inventively by Jenny Cooper. Winner of a Storylines Notable Non-Fiction Award 2015."

A Treasury of New Zealand Poems for Children edited by Paula Green, illustrated by Jenny Cooper, published by Penguin Random House New Zealand, 2017.
ISBN : 9780143772194
NZ $40.00

There are two Janet Frame poems included, and all is beautifully illustrated by Jenny Cooper.

I blogged about the first edition, published in 2014, here.

Here is a lovely news report highlighting the work that editor Paula Green does in bringing the love of poetry to young people in schools.
