Shortlisted for the 2016 CLPE Children’s Poetry Award. “An exciting collection that challenges in a way few anthologies for children do.” – 2016 CLiPPA judges Falling out of the Sky is a treasury of poems which retell classic myths, legends and fairytales from across the world in fun, often tongue-in-cheek ways. Hansel and Gretel s witch takes us behind the scenes of the construction of her gingerbread cottage, and Medusa explains how the snakes on her head rule out a lot of options in everyday life wearing a hat, for example. Full of alternate viewpoints and spirited new versions of old stories, Falling out the Sky is a friendly introduction to poetry as well as the joy of literature. In tales about the beginning of time to the end of the world, poets and characters speak directly to the readers, revelling in the possibilities of storytelling. These are poems which parents can read aloud to younger children, and which older children can read to themselves, delighting in the mischief and invention of the poets. show more
