As a children's librarian, I'm always looking for poetry that speaks to the everyday experiences of kids, and this new collection by William Conelly does just that. From digging for worms with a teaspoon, to imagining the moon as lemon candy, these 14 poems capture the daily delights of a young boy named Tommy in his rural home West of Boston.


With playful descriptions of toys and riddles that are reminiscent of the poems of A. A. Milne, and invitingly colourful illustrations by Nadia Kossman, this collection vividly recreates the joy of childhood.

William Conelly

William Conelly grew up in a family of four boys and, once married, had three boys himself. Joined to an education in English verse, he is well-suited to create a lyric boyhood in a woodland township, a township very like the one his family enjoyed more than twenty years, West of Boston.
