The ABC Book of Australian Poetry

The best-selling treasury of poems for young people, compiled by much-loved Australian author Libby Hathorn.

A rich collection of Australian poetry, with old favourites alongside works of contemporary poets. Offering readers pleasure and renewed appreciation of our Australian culture and land.

I hope this collection stirs something in the heart and mind of the young and old alike, so the poems will be shared, read aloud, even sung, for the sheer pleasure of their particular Australian poetic voice and identity.
