Booksellers initiated this new edition, asking for Baxter’s Tree House poems to be back in print, which aligns with our choice of timeless
New Zealand books from leading writers.
A new gift edition of James K Baxter’s classic poems for children, illustrated by Kieran Rynhart.
The poems in Seagull Seagull are light and easy read-alouds for classrooms or with toddlers-on-the-couch.
James K Baxter wrote these poems when he was teaching in Lower Hutt in the 1950s. Successful in the classroom, they have been regularly reprinted in anthologies and collections and remain popular for their accessible rhythms, humour, and quintessentially New Zealand settings.
This new gift edition of Baxter’s poems is illustrated by Kieran Rynhart in dramatic spreads and beautifully drawn details.
