English poet Edward James (Ted) Hughes ranks among the greatest writers of the twentieth century and is considered to be one of the best poets of his generation. Hughes was married to American poet Sylvia Plath; their marriage was widely discussed and a subject of public fascination due to its explosive nature. Illustrated by Raymond Briggs, Hughes' Collected Poems for Children brings together poems he wrote for children throughout his lifetime, including: The Mermaid's Purse, The Cat and the Cuckoo, Nessie the Mannerless Monster, and Moon Whales.
