About the Book

A tender, moving and joyous story from one of our nation's premier poets, John Agard

From above earth, from above sky,
from below earth, from under water,
come all you little persons
come exactly as you are.

Come little bird person, come little bee person, come little tree person - little persons from all over the world join together to celebrate the dance of life and love in this stunning poem from John Agard. Stunningly illustrated by Jessica Courtney-Tickle, this is a book that both little persons and big persons will treasure and pore over for a lifetime, and is a true poem of our time.

‘A lyrical collaboration . . . a joyful, tender dance, celebrating people, places and the glory of existence.’ Guardian

'This book is a celebration of childhood and the natural world in all its rich diversity.' BookTrust

  • John Agard

    John Agard is an award-winning poet, born in British Guiana (now called Guyana) in the Caribbean, in 1949. He moved to the UK in the late 1970s and is well known for powerful and fun performances of his work. His poem 'Half Caste' has been featured in the AQA English GCSE anthology since 2002.

“A lyrical collaboration . . . well served by numinous illustrations. Little bird person, little wave person, little tree person; all spring forth from dappled, blazing or sparkling environments to join hands in a joyful, tender dance, celebrating people, places and the glory of existence.”
