Emma Purshouse: I Once Knew A Poem Who Wore A Hat signed copies from Wenlock Books

Poet Emma Purshouse’s new children’s poetry book is jam-packed with pictures, begging-to-be-read-out-loud poems, and poetry performing ideas, illustrated throughout by Catherine Pascall Moore.

About the book:

She has an M.A. in Creative Writing, was shortlisted twice for the Belmont Children’s Poetry Prize and appears at festivals throughout the UK.
