"Great to see such a display of creativity. Well done to all of you!"

"A great little book"

"Its excellent. really, really brilliant. I read it to anyone who would listen on the beach this weekend. B****y well done!"

"I couldn't put it down - my face is streaming with tears, my jaws ache from laughing and if my neighbours had been in, no doubt they would have called the funny farm"

"Wonderful, witty, sensitive, funny, moving"

"A smashing little book to dip into at any time... Essential reading."

"'The Owl and the Cragrat' bulges with hilariously irreverent 'piss takes', and words to inspire all climbers, whether they're beginners, lifers, poetry lovers or not."

"Destined to seep its way into climbing culture"

"Congratulations on publishing such a masterpiece"

"A real tour de force"

"Hugely entertaining"

"Very clever ... always funny"

"A fantastic little book ... Leave it in your bathroom, take it away on holiday, give it at Christmas."

The Owl & the Cragrat (Edited by Marc Chrysanthou and Gordon Stainforth) is an anthology of classic English poems of English Literature skilfully and lovingly 'adapted' by climbing writers to encompass many dimensions of the climbing experience - including fear, camaraderie, gear-worship, bouldering and death. Had W.B. Yeats, Shakespeare, Shelley, or T.S. Eliot ever climbed, this is what they might have written.

Wonderfully illustrated with 18 original drawings by Duncan Bourne, this is a 'must' for every literature-loving climber - indeed, for anyone who enjoys poetry.
