Summary (From the publisher):

A collection of poems to celebrate childhood. From the make-believe world of "The Land of Counterpane" to the simple pleasure of "At the Seaside", the curiosity of "Auntie's Skirts" to the dreams of "Foreign Lands", these poems capture a child's wonder and fascination with everyday things.
