Twelve inspiring poems from Joseph Coelho, one for each month of the year, paired with folk art from Kelly Louise Judd give this book year-round appeal.

'Heart-flutteringly lovely and powerful' - Book Trust

'In the classroom, this book could be used as a reference for writers to create their own season poems; play with the language of the original poems or pair their own personal memories with the weather or changing seasons.' - North Somerset Teachers Book Award

'This will appeal to all ages and never date...' - LoveReading4Kids

The author

Joseph Coelho is a London-born poet and children's author. His poems have been published in several anthologies including Green Glass Beads, edited by Jacqueline Wilson. Joseph has been a guest poet on CBeebies 'Rhyme Rocket' where he was beamed up from 'The Rhyme Rock' to perform his Bug Poem and has featured alongside Michael Rosen and Valerie Bloom on Radio 4’s Poetry Playtime. His debut children's collection, Werewolf Club Rules, was the winner of the 2015 CLPE CLiPPA Poetry Award. His collection for older readers Overheard In A Tower Block was long-listed for the 2018 Carnegie Medal and short-listed for the 2018 CLPE CliPPA Poetry Award. He features in 'Teach Poetry' a 10 part BBC online series that aims to make the writing of poetry fun and accessible to all. In addition to poetry, Joseph also writes picture books like the heart-rending If All The World Were... named as a Guardian Book Of The Month. All of his work has poetry and an element of performance at their heart making his festival and school sessions dynamic occasions.
