Thinker: My Puppy Poet and Me

by Eloise Greenfield
illustrated by Ehsan Abdollahi

Ref: 15869

"I'm deep and I'm a poet", barks Thinker, a puppy brought into the home of another budding poet, word-music maker Jace. And so begins an energetic exchange of rhythms and verse between a 7-year-old and his pet. Recipient of the 2018 Coretta Scott King-Virginia Hamilton Award for Lifetime Achievement, the 90-year-old poet Greenfield is on fine form (this is the first time she has been published in the UK). A smart tale in verse, with wispy yet bold paper-tissue collages from illustrated by Iranian artist Abdollahi. Highly Commended in the CLiPPA CLPE Poetry Award 2019. Age 7-11, Hardback 29pp
