Matt Goodfellow's debut collection, Carry Me Away, is a beautifully crafted set of poems that blend humour, intrigue and a love of the natural world. The poems will delight, amuse and challenge young readers between the ages of 7-12 but are there to be enjoyed by the whole family. Poems such as 'The Boy That Came From Under the Ground' are already critically acclaimed having been highly commended in international competitions. 'With the Waterfalls' and 'Another Place' feature in the 2015 CLiPPA shortlisted, 'Let in the Stars' anthology. As award-winning poet, Mandy Coe, says of Carry Me Away, 'Poems, yes - and seas, skies, laughter and music! This is a book to treasure. Matt Goodfellow's poetry shows how mystery and adventure can live between the shortest of line.' Celebrated poet and story-teller, Pie Corbett, states, 'Matt's writing is sensitive and powerful, transforming the world under the microscope of poetic language.'
