About the Author:

J. Patrick Lewis is the 2011 winner of the NCTE Award for Poetry and is the current Children's Poet Laureate. He has written more than sixty books for children and adults, including Spot the Plot: A Riddle Book of Book Riddles and Please Bury Me in the Library. He has two other books scheduled: When Thunder Comes: Poems for Civil Rights Leaders (Chronicle) and The National Geographic Book of Animal Poems (an anthology Lewis edited for National Geographic). He lives in Westerville, Ohio.

Matthew Cordell is the author-illustrator of Trouble Gum and Another Brother and the illustrator of Toby and the Snowflake, among many other titles. His black-and-white art has appeared in Gail Carson Levine's poetry collection Forgive Me, I Meant to Do It: False Apology Poems, Rachel Vail's Justin Case series of books, and Julie Sternberg's Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie. He lives in the suburbs of Chicago.

From Booklist:

From Hippopotabus and circul8 to Cucumbersome, puns are a big part of the fun in this wry collection of nonsense verse by U.S. Children’s Poet Laureate Lewis. Kids will love the wordplay and silliness that extend through rhyme and colloquial phrases: I flew a mammoth jet that’s how / I learned to dino-soar. With each short verse, the line drawings add to the farce and uproar: the words of a trail of crumbs twirl across the page, for example. Young kids won’t get all the allusions (When Billy met Ginny), but there is a lot here to make them laugh and look again at the sound and meaning of what they take for granted. One of the best poems is The Impossibles, with a quiet twist about giving up on trying to reach Forever and settling for Now and Then. A great choice for sharing across the curriculum. Grades 2-5. --Hazel Rochman
