This satisfyingly fat volume is a delight - from the hilarious Beastly Tales (with illustrations by Ravi Shankar), through the clever and memorable 'Quatrains', to single poems of immense lyrical truth and beauty, such as 'All You Who Sleep Tonight'
All his work shares an interest in using dazzling, lyrical language to bring past and present alive . . . There is so much to enjoy in Seth's mapping of the frailty and joy of our human existence
