To Catch An Elephant

To Catch an Elephant

by Gerard Benson (Smith/ Doorstop Books)

Some lovely new poems and the best from his two acclaimed books for children from the late Gerard Benson, a truly accomplished poet and performer. He has left a valuable legacy. His poems for younger readers are full of quirky humour, amazingly grand ideas, beautiful words; they burst upon the brain with a love of life and display a curiosity that is catching. I would go so far as to say that some of Gerard Benson’s work for children will prove to be quite important in the annals of poetry. This collection will bring pleasure to adults as well as children and teenagers. Jut buy it. TUC
