The Book Fairies celebrate UK National Poetry Day with a new collection of poems

Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright is a collection of poems from The National Trust and Nosy Books publishers – and book fairies were lucky enough to hide some around the UK!

Book Fairies around the UK were excited to celebrate National Poetry today by hiding this incredible new collection of poems called Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright!

About the book:

A glorious and ambitious sequel to I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree – winner of Waterstones Children’s Gift of the Year 2018 and Red Magazine’s Children’s Illustrated Book of the Year 2019, and described by Julia Donaldson as “An absolutely beautiful book.”

This lavishly illustrated gift book treasury of 366 animal poems – one for every day of the year – ranges from unforgettable classics to contemporary works from around the world, including poetry in translation. The spectacular range of poems for children includes work by Roger McGough, William Blake, Dick King-Smith, Ted Hughes, Grace Nichols, Lewis Carroll, Christina Rossetti, Emily Dickinson. Britta Teckentrup’s breathtaking illustrations bring together all the richness and wonder of the animal kingdom, making this poetry anthology a perfect gift that will be treasured by generations.

With sumptuous finishes including cloth binding, full colour illustrations throughout, textured paper jacket, ribbon marker, and head and tail bands.

A couple of very lucky finders!

There is very little a book fairy loves more than hearing from book finders, and these ones are particularly sweet. Their mum found a book, brought it home and hid it for them to find in the house! See this video for their treasure hunt in action!
