Rubery Award – the proof!

Rubery Award

Here is the beautiful award that Emma Purshouse and Catherine Pascall Moore have won for their magnificent children’s poetry book:

I once knew a poem who wore a hat is packed with begging-to-be-read-out-loud poems and joyful pictures.

A.F.Harrold says of it:

Emma’s poems are full of life and laughs, bubbling with music and wisdom and silliness and jokes and cute animals. She’s a great performer of her work and the book is crammed with tips to help the reader become a performer too. With fine and funny pictures.”

As this has become a new part of the school curriculum for Key Stage 1 & 2 – this book is a lifeline for teachers, and parents alike – as well as a future classic with children!
