Michael Rosen: Poetry for Children of All Ages

Michael Rosen is one of our best-loved writers for children. He has written and edited over 140 books, including No Breathing in Class, Quick Let’s Get Out of Here, Mind Your Own Business, Wouldn’t You Like to Know and Mustard, Custard, Grumble Belly and Gravy, and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. He currently writes a regular column in the Guardian and presents Radio Four’s long-running Word of Mouth. His most recent book is The Disappearance of Emile Zola.

Whether Michael is writing for children or for adults, his poems always combine the silly, the sinister and the surreal to ask why the silly emperor isn’t wearing any clothes. A chance to hear Michael read from his most recent collections for grown-ups, Don’t Mention the Children and Listening to a Pogrom on the Radio.

With music from Joe Christie.
