Valerie Bloom's The World is Sweet (see review above) is one of the Poetry Book Society's three autumn term choices for its Children's Poetry Bookshelf, aimed at key stage 2 pupils. Subscribers pay pound;30 for six books a year or pound;42 for nine (the cover price can be up to pound;10) from a total of nine titles chosen by writers, teachers and librarians. This time the poets Pie Corbett and Philip Gross have selected Hello New! edited by John Agard (Orchard Books, pound;9.99, to be reviewed in TES Primary magazine on September 21) and A Men Fish Smile by Roger Stevens, Sue Cowling and Jan Dean (Macmillan Sandwich Poets series, pound;3.99) alongside the Bloom collection from Bloomsbury Children's Books, pound;6.95.
