Seasons change, each bringing its own spell of optimism and hope. Artist, illustrator, poet, hiker and all round champ Matt Hodson (AKA Matthew the Horse) knows this and his new self-published book is here to bring some joy into the world. Forwards Always is a collection of poems to be read aloud. The book is a toy, a script, a game and a puzzle. These poems are activated through performance and play. How you choose to make sense of them is up to you and your audience. There is a good one about melons.
