Think of these poems not like still pictures, but more like doors: things you can push on, and that will open on to other things. I defy anyone to read this poetry collection without feeling lighter, brighter and all fired up to conquer the world.

The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “Poetry always needs champions and Ella Risbridger is a modern-day Boudicca. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book, as the breathtaking cover artwork by Anna Shepeta caught my eye months ago! A forceful, passionate and uplifting collection of poems by women and girls that is guaranteed to inspire, delight and empower. With sumptuous finishes including cloth binding, full colour illustrations throughout, textured paper jacket, ribbon marker, and head and tail bands.Ella is also the editor of the anthology Set Me On Fire: A Poem For Every Feeling, published by Transworld in November 2019.

This is the third in the Nosy Crow series of their big and beautiful poetry anthologies (see below for links) and it is a glorious celebration of female poetry writing.

From well-loved poets, including Maya Angelou, Wendy Cope, Lucille Clifton and Christina Rossetti, to newer voices such as Amanda Gorman, Yrsa Daley-Ward and Ada Limon, this outstanding collection from talented anthologist Ella Risbridger has poems for every mood and every moment. Within her introduction, she tells us of the origin of her love of poetry after her beloved Granny had shared a poetry book with her when she was a young child. The absolutely stunning artwork leaps out at you from the bookshelf and the end papers are filled with carefully considered doodles representing many of the 'characters' from within the book. Within the 141 pages of this very special book are poems you are asked to read very quickly ('Comet' by Kate Wakeling), or sing to a popular nursery rhyme tune ('Sing a Song of People' by Lois Lenski), ones about school ('Getting Ready for School' by Caryl Brahms or 'Mrs Hamilton's Register' by Carol Ann Duffy); there are poems by young children about God, and poems to interact with ('How to Eat a Poem' by Eve Merriam).

Ella Risbridger’s collection of old and new poems has been carefully chosen to grow a love of poetry in all reader’s hearts while Anna Shepta’s illustrations capture the mood of each perfectly. I very much enjoyed reading her introduction and afterword where the reader will find much encouragement for equality and acceptance of women (including those who identify as female) and the much-needed level pegging of poetry along side fiction and non-fiction literature.Ella's selection is wide-ranging but accessible and will appeal to poetry lovers both young and old alike.
