I came across this book by searching my library's card catalogue for Raymond Briggs (he being my favorite illustrator (sorry Lane Smith). I knew that Ted Hughes was an author and Sylvia Plath's widower. I had never read anything by him before. I just did not get into this book. I can't explain why. I found myself constantly moving my eyes over the words but not understanding what I had been reading. I went back and re-read. I had to read aloud to get the meter of his poems and sometimes he changed to no meter or rhyme in the middle of a poem. Made me wonder why he's published and I'm not.
