Hughes' poems for young people are arranged according to target age but well before you hit the halfway point you're in 9-99 territory. Even toward the front of the book, when you're dealing with the goofiest verse for the littlest tykes (see the selections from "Meet My Folks"), Hughes' work has far more heft than the "for Children" designation prompts the wizened reader to expect.

I hate that I loved this book. I need to let it go and move on. But these poems were delightful, simple, clever, funny and numerous. Where did he find the time? Delightfully illustrated too with simple pencil sketches that do not distract from the words. I particularly enjoyed the Moon Whales and other Moon poems chapter, there was some quite fantastical verse in there.

I came across this book by searching my library's card catalogue for Raymond Briggs (he being my favorite illustrator (sorry Lane Smith).

I had to read aloud to get the meter of his poems and sometimes he chang [...]

I recently read The Iron Man (aka The Iron Giant) by the author and enjoyed it thoroughly but was disappointed in this collection of Hughes' work. I was hoping that this collection of poems would be like the British equivalent of Shel Silverstein. It was not. And that might be unfair to Ted Hughes and what he has meant to millions of readers but I was left disappointed. Fortunately, I have a copy of Where the Sidewalk Ends and The Giving Tree to wash the taste of this away.

None of these really grabbed me. Nothing he wrote made me want to read more. Everything was too wordy and too much about animals

These are remarkably rich poems that make for great read-alouds for older children.
