About this Item

Paperback. 88 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.0in. x 0.2in.Full of crazy poems which will make you laugh out loud. You may see yourself in them, or they may remind you of your children or grandchildren. In this follow-up to A Small Book of Kick-Arse Poetry Lissa Judd again focuses on the 12-15 tear-old who is reading-averse, but she succeeds in producing a book with wide appeal. The Kick-Arse Poetry books strive to entice those with poor reading skills who flounder at the edge of education systems: those who may have learned that reading is an onerous task with few rewards. These books attempt to engage the disengaged. Underpinning the wacky verse is a deliberate strategy to improve vocabulary and enhance self-esteem. They champion the average and the ordinary, and uplift the weary and downtrodden. A glossary has been included in this book - a breath of fresh air that blows away dull dictionary pages and replaces them with definitions and examples that are as hilarious as the poetry. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780473266127
