The winner of the first CLPE (Centre for Literacy in Primary Education)
Poetry Award is Under the Moon and Over the Sea edited by John Agard and Grace Nichols and published by Walker Books. The award was presented on Wednesday 11th June in the Chelsfield Room at the Royal Festival Hall by Michael Rosen, who was one of the judges along with Morag Styles and Margaret Meek Spencer, who chaired the panel.

Michael Rosen, writing in the current edition of the Times Educational Supplement, calls the book "a post-colonial 'treasury'. subverting all those connotations of heritage, plunder and piracy - a great first winner of the CLPE Poetry Award."
