DigitalDanSolo: RIP Eric Carle - the Roger McGough-narrated animations of his stuff have been go-to soul-soothers in this house during the past year.

KennethKriheli: I also recommend Andrew Goff’s THE WORLD OF ERIC CARLE (1993), which animated 5 of his stories. Excellent narrations by Roger McGough and Juliet Stevenson, a pastoral score by Julian Nott, and fluid animation of the trademark Carle visual style. It’s magic

Eddi_CK: Always a little bit disappointed when my daughter doesn't pick this for a bedtime story. The animation narrated by Roger mcgough slaps as well.

DixieDarch: End of an era. My kids had The Hungry Caterpillar and my grandchildren love it too, plus Papa will you show me the moon? and The Very Quiet Cricket. We have an old school DVD narrated by Juliet Stevenson and Roger McGough. No animation, no Disney spangle. Just magic.

roger_mcgough: Ouch, never opening up again.

welfordwrites: “You and I”: a poem by Roger McGough

HandTBristol: "Humour came in as a defence thing, in case people thought I was getting above myself or getting too serious. But I don't think audiences would come back if you were only going for the easy laugh. You have to express vulnerability, too." - Roger McGough

TheLisaOHare: My mum took me to see Roger McGough when I was little and it’s definitely a happy memory that’s stuck with me.

Vague_Biscuit: I mean, he's a sweet man who writes funny poems. Utterly heartbreaking to see this happening to him again and again. I'm not even much into poetry but I had a book of his and Roger McGough's that I loved as a kid. I think it's still on my bookshelf

HandTBristol: "It's not about standing in front of an audience to get applause, it's about the poems, always letting them do the talking." - Roger McGough

Lewis Carroll Poem
A Boat Beneath A Sunny Sky
 by Lewis Carroll

A boat beneath a sunny sky,
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July-

Children three that nestle near,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Pleased a simple tale to hear-
