ACHUKA Book of the Day 4 Aug 2020
An effervescent debut collection from Laura Mucha, winner of the Caterpillar Poetry Prize in 2016 and the 2019 YorkMix Poems for Children. She is widely anthologised and is described as a ‘mesmerising performer’ of her own work.
The title poem is a departing note left by Cinderella left for her Ugly Sisters:
Leaving tonight, so good luck with the chores,
I’m dropping my apron and keys by the door.
Listen to extracts from the collection read by the poet on her website…
