We Are Britain! Synopsis

A new poetry collection from renowned performance poet Benjamin Zephaniah, celebrating the diversity of British society.

A unique portrait of British children, Benjamin has written 12 poems, each one about a child in his or her home environment. The children are from a range of backgrounds and cultures and the book challenges traditional perceptions of the way children live.

It shows that despite their differences, children have many similar preoccupations whatever their cultural background. We Are Britain springs from the rich interaction between many peoples which characterises modern Britain.

Illustrated with Prodeepta Das' vibrant photographs, this is a fascinating and fun collection which children will love.
