Title: On the Move - Poems About Migration

Author: Michael Rosen

Illustrations: Quentin Blake

Former Children’s Laureates Michael Rosen and Sir Quentin Blake join forces for a personal and uniquely affecting collection of poems about migration.


"What you leave behind
Won't leave your mind.
But home is where you find it.
Home is where you find it."


Michael Rosen and Sir Quentin Blake join forces for a landmark new collection, focusing on migration and displacement. Michael’s poems are divided into four: in the first series, he draws on his childhood as part of a first-generation Polish family living in London; in the second, on his perception of the War as a young boy; in the third, on his “missing” relatives and the Holocaust; and in the fourth, and final, on global experiences of migration. By turns charming, shocking and heart-breaking, this is an anthology with a story to tell and a powerful point to make: “You can only do something now.”

Many of the illustrations featured in this book are currently on display at Hastings Contemporary as part of our exhibition Quentin Blake: We Live in Worrying Times.
