A is Amazing! Reviews

"Collections of poetry are something to return to over and again, so a beautifully illustrated hardcover anthology of poems is to be treasured. This well-chosen collection of 33 poems covers the whole gamut of feelings.. Piet Grobler's beautiful and thoughtful illustrations sensitively reflect the theme of each poem and the variety of styles is fascinating - it's amazing to know they are all from one artist."


'The illustrations are edgy ...the poems also provide opportunities for children to talk about how a writer's choice of words use of shape, grammatical structure, punctuation, rhyme and rhythm achieve certain affects.'
