Pound a Poem combines learning and creativity with a fundraising initiative. It invites children to learn about healthy eating while simultaneously raising money for Rays of Sunshine Children's Charity, who exist to grant wishes for terminally and seriously ill children. Kids between five and 11 years old have been asked to write a poem about fruit or vegetables and then pay a pound to enter it into the competition, with all money raised going towards granting the wishes of some very sick children. As Pound a Poem has attracted media attention, high-profile celebrities and politicians have begun to get involved with endorsement, with some even turning their hand to becoming poets themselves. Among the celebrities to have given their support are Alan Bennett, Anthony Horowitz, Sir Alan Sugar, Jonathan Ross, Piers Morgan, Twiggy, Julie Christie, and many more. This gem of a book contains all the competition finalists' poems and showcases the most imaginative and creative thought from children in the UK. In addition, celebrity supporters have also taken time out of their hectic schedules to come up with some wonderful and diverse poetry. Some poems will make you laugh out loud, others will make you pause for thought, but all of them will bring a smile to your face.
