About the Author:

Brian P. Cleary is the author of the Words Are CATegorical®Math Is CATegorical®Food Is CATegorical™, and Animal Groups Are CATegorical™ series, as well as several picture books. He lives in Cleveland, Ohio.

From Booklist:

Cleary introduces readers to haiku and lantern poems, defining each, providing background, explaining syllabic line requirements, and offering examples. Admitting that he takes a broad approach to haiku (traditionally they are nature poems), Cleary offers many humorous verses, including: “My pet pig, Betty, / in her full karate stance, / performs the ‘pork chop.’” The lantern poems range from pastoral (“Spring. / Yellows, / Blues, and greens. / Chirp, peck, peep, pop, / bloom”) to more contemporary themes (“Slush— / gulping / icy treat. / Getting brain freeze. / Whoa”). Rowland’s colorful cartoon illustrations capture the varying moods and often extend the text. For example, he depicts one lantern poem (“Eight: / circles / up and down. / Each must be worth / four”) as a figure eight–shaped race track with four cars driving on each circle. Appended with suggested websites and books for further reading, this will be welcomed by classrooms studying poetry. Pair with Bob Raczka’s Guyku: A Year of Haiku for Boys (2010). Grades 2-4. --Kay Weisman
