Share the wonder… evocative poems celebrating the love between grandparent and child.
Inspired by childhood memories of her grandparents, Vicky Arthurs’ tender, nostalgic poems capture time spent together and wonders shared. This vivid poetry book explores themes of love, war, nature and innocence. Some poems are seen through the eyes of a child. Others are remembrances and reimaginings of her grandparents’ lives.
Full of warmth and charm, this poetic family memoir vividly evokes an English childhood and pays tribute to a generation who lived through two World Wars. As well as the gorgeous cover, the book includes four delightful illustrations by British printmaker Kate Heiss.
A wonderful read for anyone who remembers being a grandchild. An ideal gift for a grandparent.
“The best debut collection I’ve read in ages. This delightful, nostalgic book is a love letter to Vicky’s grandparents. The poems are clever and beautiful…” (Elaine Cusack, Culture, The Journal)
