Under the Moon & Over the Sea cover

An award-winning collection of poetry vividly evoking the experience of living in the Caribbean – and of leaving for other lands.

This prestigious anthology, which won the 2003 CLPE Poetry Award, conjures up the sights and sounds, tastes and tales of the Caribbean; the experience of living there – and of leaving for other lands. A companion to the acclaimed A Caribbean Dozen, this book contains more than fifty poems by over thirty poets, including John Agard, Grace Nichols, James Berry, Valerie Bloom and Benjamin Zephaniah.

"Visually and verbally, this is a stunning collection of Caribbean poetry. The book has great potential for many different classroom uses." (The Bookseller) "...transports its readers to the exotic New World, caught in exquisite illustrations as well as words." (The Herald)"
