On the Move: Poems About Migration Summary

On the Move: Poems About Migration by Michael Rosen

Former Children's Laureates Michael Rosen and Sir Quentin Blake join forces for a personal and uniquely affecting collection of poems about migration.
What you leave behind
Won't leave your mind.
But home is where you find it.
Home is where you find it.
Michael Rosen and Sir Quentin Blake join forces for a landmark new collection, focusing on migration and displacement. Michael's poems are divided into four: in the first series, he draws on his childhood as part of a first-generation Polish family living in London; in the second, on his perception of the War as a young boy; in the third, on his missing relatives and the Holocaust; and in the fourth, and final, on global experiences of migration. By turns charming, shocking and heart-breaking, this is an anthology with a story to tell and a powerful point to make: You can only do something now.

On the Move: Poems About Migration Reviews

Featured in The Bookseller's October Previews. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
Many of the poems in this collection are about Rosen's family, including those killed in the Holocaust, which he then connects with the plight of others who flee danger. Succinct and direct, both the poems and Blake's drawings are charged with feeling. * The Sunday Times *
Moving and evocative, this is a collection not to be missed. * WRD *
Enhanced by timeless pen and ink drawings from fellow former Children's Laureate, Quentin Blake, this is a deeply moving, enduring poetry collection. In an insightful introduction, Rosen describes migration as an intrinsic part of human history, which has led to the development of richly diverse societies around the world. * BookTrust *
It's powerful and moving, playful and heartbreaking, and a brilliant way to get children thinking about the migrant in all of us. * Teach Primary *
