Tim Robinson has a poet's eye for other poets' work and the potential for humorous rewording, so he set himself a task for Lent, to 'retell' twenty famous poems, endeavouring to retain the style of their original writers (and apologise to them!). Following this, he then wrote twenty poems of his own, having learned from the masters. This delightful compilation is the result of his exertions: a whole new take on old favourites as diverse as The Owl and the Pussycat and I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud. You will probably never view Jabberwocky in the same light again! Tim makes amends for the rewrites by offering up his own original work for comparison, to complete this delightful riotous assembly of rhyme and rhythm. One for poetry lovers - and doubters - everywhere. Leave it on the coffee table; it's irresistible. Oh, and do undertake the Mouse challenge on your way through.
