Hughesand#8217;s and#8220;April Rain Songand#8221;and#8212;and added a dash of math. Between the silly parodies

and the wonderfully wacky art, kids will have so much fun figuring out the puzzles,

they wonand#8217;t guess theyand#8217;re learning! Answers appear unobtrusively on each page, and

engaging information about the original poets is included. Math games and concepts,

poetry and poet biographiesand#8212;itand#8217;s all so cleverly put together. This funny book is a

treat for fans of words and numbers alike.
