'In the world of British poetry, Carol Ann Duffy is a superstar.' (Guardian) This stellar edition of her poems brings together work from her four award-winning collections for children, and sprinkles in a generous helping of new poems to match. From her dazzlingly debut Meeting Midnight through to her newest, brightest poems, Carol Ann Duffy's writing for younger readers has always bubbled with wit and humour, intelligence and affection, and introduced us to many strange and wonderful characters along the way. Among the enchanting voices to be heard are those of the Loch Ness Monster's husband, the oldest girl in the world and a herd of cows on a shopping trip to Manchester.

This collection brings together the poems Ted Hughes wrote for children throughout his life. They are arranged by volume, beginning with those for reading aloud to the very young, progressing to the poems in Under the North Star and What is the Truth? and ending with Season Songs, which Hughes remarked was written 'within hearing' of children. Raymond Briggs brings to the collection two hundred original drawings that capture the wit, gentleness and humanity of these poems and make this a book any reader - child and adult - will return to again and again.

In the Oxford Companion to Children's Literature it says of James Reeves, 'His real achievement, however, lies in his poetry, which is generally regarded as the best British ''serious'' children's verse since Walter de la Mare - though the poems are usually far from serious in subject-matter.' In this complete edition, first published in 1973, the delight is two-fold as the poems are complemented by Edward Ardizzone's beautiful and witty illustrations.

RHODES OF AFRICA by FELIX GROSS and pages of half-ton illustrations FREDERICK A. PRAEGER NEW YORK Cecil Rhodes In Memoriam AUTHORS NOTE rip HIS book, the result of twelve years of research work, is JL based on authentic contemporary sources. The thoughts and soliloquies of Cecil Rhodes are derived from his speeches, letters and reported conversations. So as not to interrupt the continuity of the story I have refrained from giving references in footnotes. An extensive bibliography of Rhodes and his times will be published later as it would be too bulky to be included in this volume. Ipi order to give inquisitive scholars an opportunity to make use of this bibliography one copy will be deposited in each of the following libraries Public Library, Cape Town. Library of the British Museum., London. Bodleian Library, Oxford. Library of Congress, Washington D. C.. I wish to express my gratitude to my daughter, Miss Ursula A, Gross, M. A., M. S., for her great assistance and patient collabora tion. To Miss Anne Kramer, B. A., and Mr Sidney Macer-Wright, my cordial thanks for their useful help.
