High Tide is a collection of the best of my poems for children written since 2002. This is a book of very accessible, crafted poetry for children of seven years old and upwards, with a balance of rhyming poems and non-rhyming poems, amusing poems and serious poems. It ranges from pieces about animals and nature to poems about space, school, and family. It includes some nonsense and riddles, and two long story poems.
‘The best newcomer is Robert Hull whose collection Stargrazer (Hodder and Stoughton) is wonderfully various, both in theme and form. It dips and delves into Roman history, Provencal legend, describes how shadows seem under bridges, retells, with a humorous lightness, Galileo’s story. This is a poetry book to make children feel and think simultaneously. Hull never patronises children by pretending to be one himself – he’s too mindful of their uniqueness to behave so improperly’ —New Statesman
