An anthology with a name like this deserves to succeed and this one will! A bright, fresh collection of poems ranging from the conscience-scratching 'Poytree', reminding us all of those limpid lessons on teacher's pet poem, to the evocative and tearful 'Wrappers', a heart-rending account of the wan emptiness when Dad leaves home just before Christmas.
