A brand new poetry book for children by award-winning poet Tony Mitton. Beautifully illustrated by Peter Bailey, The Tale of Tales is the story of a group of animals who are on a journey. Each animal in turn tells a story to the rest of the group (a bit like in The Canterbury Tales) as they travel on their way. Tony Mitton writes with a tenderness and intelligence that is hard to match. And he's funny too!
Tony Mitton is an award-winning poet, whose gently mesmerising, often humorous poetry is irresistible to both children and adults alike. He is an extremely versatile author, writing story poems and shorter verse with skill and wit. Tony does lots of author events, school visits and poetry readings and always leaves his audience entranced.
