An anthology of stories, illustrations and poetry for children
Published by Redcliffe Press for Above & Beyond, the charity fundraising for Bristol city centre hospitals. All profits to Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.
With thunder claps and walking chalk, dark nights, dare-devil sheep and huffy cats, in Don’t Be Scared our best-loved writers and illustrators articulate the magic and fears of childhood in a collection of short stories and poems for children (and grown-ups) to enjoy. Some are fables, some adventures, some are wickedly funny; all of them fizz with imagination and a child’s sense of wonder in a world that isn’t always fair. With contributions by Michael Morpurgo, Jacqueline Wilson, Wendy Cope, Carol Ann Duffy, Geraldine McCaughrean, Alexander McCall Smith, Caro Ness and many other great writers And original illustrations from Quentin Blake, Raymond Briggs, Nick Sharratt, Tony Ross, Satoshi Kitamura, Sam Usher and others. reading age 7-8 years : listening age 4-5 years
