Do you enjoy a treasure hunt? If you do, you will be in your element exploring The Poet’s House. This is a home chock full of poetic mementoes, an eclectic anthology which ranges from the traditional to the contemporary, and includes familiar favourites, unexpected gems, the brilliant, the banal, the showy, the modest, the essential, and the expendable; the host is generous in her welcome."---M. Lorna Herbert Egan, a review from www.gwales.com, with the permission of the Welsh Books Council."There are fine poems by well-known poets, and genuine pieces by others"---Books for Keeps"Jude Brigley, the editor of The Poet's House, an anthology from the Welsh publisher Pont, places poems in The Poet's Lounge, The Poet's Rucksack, The Poet's Home Videos etc. The varied selection, ranging from Gerard Manley Hopkins, through Idris Davies to Gareth Owen and the Stereophonics, makes this an anthology richly deserving of the attention such unique organisation seeks to elicit."---Michael Thorn for the Times Educational Supplement...

    This story is a collection of many different poems all together. This story is about going on a treasure hunt throughout the house. The poems included traditional poems as well as new poems that have been written. I would read this to a class first grade and up.

    I give my book five stars not for me but for all the delightful poems given to me by poets which made this a delightful project and for Fran's lovely illustrations.
