Poems to Save the World With chosen and illustrated by Chris Riddell
Chris Riddell is a master when it comes to curating poetry. His most recent anthology, Poems to Save the World With, is a response to the pandemic that has seen so many isolated for long periods. Within the covers there is solace, empathy, hope and humour.
My favourite thing about this collection is that it mixes the classic with the contemporary, which means not only are you likely to find an old favourite, you will probably find a new poet to love. This is an all-ages collection and a lovely edition to give as a gift if you need to lift someone's spirits.
