About this title


"What is a haiku? It sounds like a sneeze. And isn't a lantern a light source? Actually, they are two types of ancient Japanese poetry. Award-winning author Brian P. Cleary explains how each form works—and shows how these little poems can contain big surprises!
If It Rains Pancakes is packed with poems to make you chuckle, puzzle, and ponder. And when you’ve finished reading, you can try your hand at writing your own haiku and lanterns!"

To make the rainy days pass as a child in northern England, Andy Rowland used to draw matchstick men and matchstick cats and dogs on the walls of a coal shed with a piece of coal. Thus began his interest in art. While studying for a degree in Manchester, he accepted his first drawing award, the MacMillan Children s Book Prize. Years later, with over 20 published books under his belt, he has his own coal shed. He still lives in the rainy north of England.
