The Pied Piper, and Other Favourite Poems
Here are sixty of the finest and most entertaining poems for younger listeners. There are nonsense poems like "The Jumblies," classic animal poems like "The Snail," stories of adventure like "The Ballad of Sir Patrick Spens," and Robert Browning's classic tale of adults getting their comeuppance, "The Pied Piper of Hamelin." Modern poetry also makes its contribution with wordplay in poems like "Zoe's Ear-rings," and images of nature like "Weathers." Though principally intended for middle-grade listeners, this is a collection that will delight all audiences, young and old.
