Turn up the sound! An award-winning duo returns with a playfully enticing ode to the pleasures of reading poetry aloud.

Whether rhyming, tongue-tying, or defying structure, here are more than three dozen poems that simply beg to be read aloud. The creators of A POKE IN THE I and A KICK IN THE HEAD complete a triplet with this collection of lively rhymes and tricky tongue twisters, poems for more than one voice, bilingual poems — and poems that may just inspire kids to memorize them. Paul B. Janeczko offers a range of gems, from classic Shakespeare and Lear to anonymous rhymes to contemporary riffs on everything under the sun, while Chris Raschka counterpoints with the vibrant accents of his wittily detailed artwork.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* The collaborators’ third illustrated poetry anthology, following A Poke in the I: A Collection of Concrete Poems (2001) and A Kick in the Head: An Everyday Guide to Poetic Forms (2005), presents poems that beg to be read aloud. The universally strong poems, expertly tuned to both the anthology’s theme and its young audience, include classic and contemporary selections by well-known poets, from Lewis Carroll to Janet S. Wong. Loose categories for one, two, three, and more voices suggest ways to share the poems, and there are also bilingual poems, limericks, tongue twisters, and nonsense verses. Working in paint and brightly patterned cut paper, Raschka interprets the words with exuberance and sly wit, combining atmospheric, expressionistic details with representational figures that will draw young readers back to the poems’ subjects and themes. In Rebecca Kai Dotlich’s “Where Lizzie Lived: A Haunted Tale,” for example, an undulating swirl of gray ends with a woman’s face and deliciously amplifies the shivery lines: “Rotted floors / grumble slightly as we’re walking. / Do you hear Miss Lizzie talking?” Walt Whitman’s “I Hear America Singing,” bordered in beautiful, joyful images, closes this superbly noisy celebration of language that’s sure to convert even the most reluctant poetry readers. Grades 4-7. --Gillian Engberg
