Another collection of quirky, thought-provoking and highly entertaining poems from a performance poet with an increasing fan base. In this collection, Stewart Henderson looks at creation in its broadest sense – from the depths of the sea, to the breadth of the earth, and the realms of space and sky. The poems feature many aspects of the plant and animal world both real and imaginary. The poems are often shown from the perspective of a child (answering curious questions, or helping him or her to understand more about his/her place in the universe). Poems will include short humorous verses, longer narrative poems and the poet’s inimitable ‘wry thoughts’.
Stewart Henderson is a poet, broadcaster and songwriter. The Sunday Times described his children’s poetry as “essential reading”. He presented Questions Questions for ten years for BBC Radio 4, and has originated and presented many social history documentaries for BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 2, and BBC World Service. Stewart has also presented and contributed to some of the BBC Radio 4’s ‘crown jewels’ such as From Our Own Correspondent, Pick of the Week, Something Understood, Broadcasting House, Saturday Live, PM, iPM and Four Thought. His documentary, The Holy Fire, made on location in Israel, won the Jerusalem Radio Award for Best Feature. Stewart also received a Sony Radio Award nomination for his documentary, From Hairnets To Goalnets, about the first ever women’s football team formed during the First World War: The Dick, Kerr Ladies. As a songwriter, Bob Harris of BBC Radio 2 praised the “lyrical intelligence” of Stewart’s lyrics.
