Polkabats and Octopus Slacks: 14 Stories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Daniel Pinkwater performed Calef Brown's poetry on NPR, the response was tremendous. Pinkwater's animated personality and his appreciation for the delightfully silly make him the perfect voice to bring alive the inventive story-poems of Polkabats and Octopus Slacks.

Calef Brown's distinctive illustrations have appeared in numerous magazines and on book covers, CDs, soda cans, and gallery walls. In addition to the highly acclaimed Polkabats and Octopus Slacks: 14 Stories, he has written and illustrated Dutch Sneakers and Fleakeepers: 14 More Stories.

Synopsis:

Not far from a greenish town, the Bathtub Driver is selling cut-rate imported shampoo. Georgie Spider serves up award-winning pies, while overhead on Highwire 66 theres a small problem causing an acrobat traffic jam. Eds funny smell, Elizas special jacket—theyre all part of the picture in Polkabats and Octopus Slacks, fourteen stories about pesky snails, sleeping fruit, and one funky snowman.

Synopsis:

This riotous collection contains 14 nonsense poems about pesky snails, sleeping fruit, and one funky snowman. "Pure mania and inspiration."--Daniel Pinkwater. Full color.
