Pizza, Pigs, and Poetry: How to Write a Poemby Jack Prelutsky
Synopses & Reviews

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).
