Good Reads comments about Rosa Rose

(George Elliott Clarke, The Chronicle Herald, 06/08/2013)
“Priest is a poet-troubadour in the 1960s mode of Bob Dylan: To illuminate injustice and to celebrate struggle against it. This premise lies behind his latest children’s-oriented book of verse, Rosa Rose, wherein Priest presents a gallery of heroes, those who suffered to achieve real liberation for the poor and oppressed, or simply to make life better for others.”

“Colourful, loaded with repetitions, and with captivating images and phrases,
these poems will undoubtedly be memorized and sung for a long time to come.
Highly recommended.
