Julia Donaldson, past Children's Laureate, said of "Hear Here!":

 This is a book of delights. There are playful poems, puzzling poems, thoughful and intriguing ones.

Particularly appealing is the variety of the subjects - including school, poverty, thaw, chocolate, and the death of a hamster. And through all the poems runs Trevor Parsons' love and mastery of language. Any classroom or home will be enriched by a copy of "Hear Here!"
