Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Introducing senryu! The kissin' cousins of haiku, these short, punchy, and punny poems take every imaginable subject and make the reader look at life through a circus mirror.

Tackling a wide range of child-friendly subjects (including babysitters, jump-roping, snoring parents, spoiled pets, and Grandpa's underwear), this spirited collection of senryu will leave children rolling in laughter as they untangle the riddles and word play.

Review:

"Plenty of fun, with nary a screw-up." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Children who get the easier bits of verse may stretch themselves to understand the harder ones, but adult help will still be necessary for many. That's fine, because there's lots of fun to be had." Booklist

Synopsis:

This hilarious collection of offbeat poetry introduces senryu, a cousin of haiku featuring punchy and punny poems that tackle a range of child-friendly subjects. Full color.

This book includes great selections of comical haikus. It is a great resource when teaching younger children about different types of poetry.
