The Bramble King by Catherine Fisher
Published on 30th April 2019
The Bramble King is full of darkly resonant tales, ingenious parables, curiously haunted rooms and palaces and beautifully observed images of the natural world. A prolific, popular and prize-winning author of fantasy fiction for children, Catherine Fisher began her writing career as a poet and now returns to poetry with her first collection since 1999. This collection includes poems on imaginary planets and princes, on the summer solstice, on drawing, on a glass shop and a clockwork crow: rich tales with imaginative twists and unexpected characters. This is a beautifully thoughtful and wonderfully entertaining collection of verse. Both her fiction fans and poetry readers will find much to enjoy in The Bramble King.
