A quirkily varied layout, scribbly-scrabbly illustrations, and unusual glimpses at everyday experiences mark the sixth entry in James Stevenson's splendid corn book collection (Popcorn, Candy Corn, Sweet Corn, etc.). Stevenson's free-form verses, as down-to-earth as the title implies, contemplate gritty roadside snowbanks, a not-so-scared opossum, a conversation between forks and spoons, and a bottle of ketchup on the dinner table. The pictures speak as loudly as the words in many cases. In "Larry's," for example, a lot of large, white lumps under a sign stating "Larry's Used Cars" are explained:
Yesterday Larry soldQuiet, wry, and right on the mark, Stevenson's poems and pictures never fail to please and amuse. Readers from 7 to 107 will be inspired to see the world with slightly (and delightfully) skewed vision after spending an hour with Stevenson's corn. (Ages 7 and older) --Emilie Coulter About the Author:
