Pros

  • A great selection of poems from some classic poets all inspire a magical theme.
  • Could easily inspire classroom activities, with different strands of poetry available in the collection.

Can you hear the distant dragon’s rumble of thunder? And smell the sweet swampy aroma of the ogre? Can you taste the tangy tarantula tarts? And see the girl who’s really a wizard? From magic carpets and wands to unicorns, potions, creams and lotions, Paul Cookson’s brewing a spell of fantastically magic poems.

On this tattered magic carpet
You can choose your destination
For nothing’s quite as magical
As your imagination
