'Sarah Wallis' poetry snaps and creates patterns on the page; just like the natural world sings, as does her hold over language. A joyful collection that sees delicate beauty in the world around us'
- Isabelle Kenyon, Managing Directory of Fly on the Wall Press
'The poems in 'How to Love the Hat Thrower' are full of lyrical playfulness and virtuosity. Wallis has an eye for the natural world that is fresh and engaging but, more importantly, she makes you wish that you could see the world the way that she does, even for just a day'
- Colin Bancroft, founder of Nine Pens and Poets Directory.
