    The occasional gem lights up this patchwork of British stories and poems for children of the Pandemic. Anthony Horowitz's contribution sums the collection up nicely: It is so much easier to cope If you decide to live in hope. Not all are as preachy as that, though. I enjoyed Catherine Johnson's poem The Axolotl at Bedtime which opens like this: Never give your axolotl chocolate in a botl Serve it in a tiny eggcup, not to cold and not too hotl. Then tuck him - very gently - in his hand-carved wooden cot The occasional gem lights up this patchwork of British stories and poems for children of the Pandemic.

I should add, the book is free online from the wonderful National Literary Trust. https://literacytrust.org.uk/ Definitely worth a browse or two.

    I chose this book because Stephanie Burgis had written a small part of it, and it seemed generally appealing. As suggested in the introduction, I dipped in and out of it over the course of the two weeks I had before release day. I find it difficult to write a review for a book that contains so many, very different, tiny stories, illustrations and poems. I enjoyed some more than others, but every single one of them has something to teach us about hope. Some are touching, a few made me cry, many ma I chose this book because Stephanie Burgis had written a small part of it, and it seemed generally appealing.

I find it difficult to write a review for a book that contains so many, very different, tiny stories, illustrations and poems. I enjoyed some more than others, but every single one of them has something to teach us about hope. Some are touching, a few made me cry, many made me smile or laugh. If you are struggling, or having dark moments, I definitely recommend dipping into this book, and feeling many other humans reaching out to say you are not alone, don’t give up, the world may be full of darkness, but there is much light too. I was given a free copy of this book, my opinions are my own.

    It’s lovely to see this anthology in print. This is exactly what we need, a bit more hope in our lives,! This breeze of hope coming from such wonderful writers makes the message powerful and strong. There are a great range of stories, poems and illustrations all beautifully written and designed.

    “Real, true hope isn’t the promise that everything will be all right - but it’s a belief that the world has so many strangenesses and possibilities that giving up would be a mistake; that we live in a universe shot with the unexpected” Katherine Rundell, prologue If you enjoy children’s literature and want some uplifting and entertaining snippets from a wide range of authors, find the link to this book on the National Literary Trust’s website, and have a peruse. (Plus, it’s free)
