Poetry Friday

Today's Poetry Friday Roundup is hosted by Biblio File.

Now that October has arrived, Halloween-themed books are a major request from our young patrons. I thought I'd get a head start with: Hallowilloween: nefarious silliness -- written and illustrated by Calef Brown. Brown is clearly enjoying the opportunity to play with sound in these fanciful nonsense verses inspired by the season's spooky holiday.

Here is Friday's Famous First: "Rose was the first child born free and easy to Jackson and Millicent MacGruder."

Oooo I'll have to look for this one at the library. I like nonsense verse and I think it pairs perfectly with Halloween!

I love Caleb Brown! How did I miss that he has this Halloween book? I'll have to check it out.

I'm not usually a fan of nonsense poetry, but Calef's stuff is clever. I can't wait to read the whole book! The premises shared in the SLJ review have me totally ready to be creeped out and laughing at the same time. Thanks!
