Synopsis: Paul Muldoon's first poem for children, The Last Thesaurus, was published in 1995 to dazzling reviews. The Noctuary of Narcissus Batt is another wonderful work. Narcissus Batt is up late one night in his Gothic manor house jotting down his night thoughts, which take the form of various beasts who reveal themselves alphabetically. Children will respond intuitively to the liveliness and inventiveness of the language, and to the wonderfully elucidating illustrations by Marketa Prachatika, internationally renowned for her brilliant interpretations of such classics as Alice in Wonderland and James and the Giant Peach.

About the Author: Paul Muldoon was born in Portadown in county Armagh in 1951. He read English at Queen's University, Belfast, and while he was at university Faber published his first collection of poems, New Weather. For several years he was a radio producer for BBC Northern Ireland. He moved to the USA in 1987 and has held various university teaching posts, most recently Director of the Creative Writing Program at Princeton University, where he is Howard G. B. Clark Professor in the Humanities. In 1999 he was elected Professor of Poetry at Oxford University. He has won many awards and prizes, including the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize in 1991, the T. S. Eliot Award for The Annals of Chile in 1995, the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award for Literature in 1996, and the Irish Times Irish Literature Prize for his New Selected Poems in 1997. In 2003 he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for his collection Moy Sand and Gravel.
