The poetry book inspired by the London Underground

Author Harry Miller was sitting on a delayed underground train one morning when the beginnings of a poem about the tube popped into his head.

Liking the rhythm and verse, he began to flesh out poems about all of London’s underground lines – and has now turned them into a book of children’s poetry.

Simon has been speaking to Harry about the new book ‘Wonderground’ which is out today.
