Don't Mention the Children

(2015)
A collection of poems by

 
 
Michael Rosen is one of the UK's best-loved writers for children but his poems for grown-ups are less well known, and Don't Mention the Children is his first collection since 2007. Fans of his children's books will enjoy the way these poems combine the silly and the sinister to catch the surrealism of everyday life. Few poets writing today can move so effortlessly between childishness and childlike seriousness. But at the heart of the book is a remarkable series of poems about anti-Semitism, Fascism, and war, connecting the contemporary world to the lives of Rosen's parents and grandparents.
