Companion to the acclaimed volume A Caribbean Dozen, this is a major new anthology of poetry by over 30 Caribbean poets. Sparking crystal waters and coral beaches; velvet smooth dolphins and flying fish; the call of the six o'clock bee and the pung-la-la chorus of frogs; the flavour of coconut water, pawpaw and Johnnie Bake; whispered ghost stories about Duppy Dan and the Jumbie Man... Divided into five sections, each magnificently illustrated by a major contemporary artist, this glorious collection of poetry conjures the sights and sounds, tastes and tales of the Caribbean; the experience of living there - and of leaving for other lands. A companion to the acclaimed A Caribbean Dozen, Under the Moon and Over the Sea contains more than fifty poems, many of them previously unpublished, by over thirty poets, including John Agard, Grace Nichols, James Berry, Valerie Bloom and Benjamin Zephaniah. It is a volume truly to be savoured.

Grade 3 Up-A collection of more than 50 poems guaranteed to chase away any winter blahs. Each of the book's five sections begins with a piece of Caribbean folklore and is illustrated by a different contemporary artist-Cathie Felstead, Jane Ray, Christopher Corr, Satoshi Kitamura, and Sara Fanelli. Within each section, vibrant words and evocative artwork bring the sights, sounds, and smells of the islands to life-from powerful storms in Alan Smith's "Emily Hurricane" ("She had silver hair/but it was kind of wild,/electricity for eyes/and a crackling laugh") to dazzling markets in Agnes Maxwell-Hall's "Jamaica Market" ("Honey, pepper, leaf-green limes,/Pagan fruit whose names are rhymes"). Agard and Nichols, who collaborated on No Hickory No Dickory No Dock: Caribbean Nursery Rhymes (Candlewick, 1995; o.p.), have once again created an exuberant tribute to one of the world's enchanted places.
