Even kids who don't know they like poetry will love this playful, visually accessible collection of thirty concrete poems--illustrated by a Caldecott Honor artist! Concrete poems startle and delight the eye and mind. The size and arrangement of words--or even just letters on the page can add or alter meaning, and poems can take the shape of crows and fly off the page. Or become a balloon filled with rhyme drifting away from outstretched hands. Or fourteen exuberant lines can become "Joy Sonnet in a Random Universe." Here in a single extraordinary volume are thirty poems from some of the world's finest visual poets, including John Hollander, Emmett Williams, Maureen W. Armour, and Douglas Florian--a spirited "poke in the I" brought to you by the very talented Paul B. Janeczko and Chris Raschka.
