Pizza, Pigs, and Poetry: How to Write a Poem Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Have you ever tried to write a poem about a pizza? How about a pig? How about a pigeon, penguin, potato, Ping-Pong, parrot, puppy, pelican, porcupine, pie, pachyderm, or your parents?

Jack Prelutsky has written more than a thousand poems about all of these things—and many others. In this book he gives you the inside scoop on writing poetry and shows you how you can turn your own experiences and stories about your family, your pets, and your friends into poems. He offers tips, advice, and secrets about writing and provides some fun exercises to help you get started (or unstuck). You'll also get a behind-the-scenes look at the ingredients of some of his most popular poems. If you are a poet, want to be a poet, or if you have to write a poem for homework and you just need some help, this is the book for you!

Synopsis:

When Mrs. Merz asks her sixth grade class to write poems of apology, they end up liking their poems so much that they decide to put them together into a book. Not only that, but they get the people to whom they apologized to write poems back. A mesmerizing collection of poetry that's perfect for inspiring childrenand#160;age nine and up to find their own poetic voice.and#160;

Synopsis:

Prelutsky has been messing with words, tickling sentences, and reveling in rhymes for years. In this anecdotal, informative, and funny book, America's Children's Poet Laureate shares his writing tips with kids of all ages.
