Compassionate, thought-provoking, playful and poignant, Matt Goodfellow’s Let's Chase Stars Together is a truly captivating collection of contemporary poems that will surely spark an infinity with poetry in even the most committed “I don’t like poems” nay-sayers.

With themes ranging from friendship, family life and fitting in, to growing up and anxiety, each and every poem has the power to chime with readers of 10 upwards, whether savoured in solitary moments, or in a lively classroom context. 

Many will prompt personal reflection, among them A Thought, in which the child narrator poignantly reveals how they wish “Mum’s sadness/was a necklace/she could unclasp/from her throat”, or Dig, Sid, Dig, a moving, loving tribute to a beloved pet dog. Then there are those that might spark deep discussion, such as First Class which tells of the time “Mum crossed his name out on the letter/and wrote/NOT AT THIS ADDRESS”. 

Quite simply, this breath-takingly beautiful collection has tremendous emotional value — it’s a true star with long-lasting radiance.
