Never Tease a Weasel

by

Never Tease a Weasel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sijo, a traditional Korean verse form, has a fixed number of stressed syllables and a humorous or ironic twist at the end. Like haiku, sijo are brief and accessible. The verses in this book illuminate funny, unexpected aspects of the everydayandmdash;of breakfast, houseplants, tennis, freshly washed socks. Carefully crafted and deceptively simple, Linda Sue Parkand#39;s sijo are a pleasure to read and an invitation to experiment with an unfamiliar poetic form. Istvan Banyaiand#39;s giddy illustrations add a one-of-a-kind luster to a book that is truly a gem.

Synopsis:

A book of irresistible and deceptively simple sijo poems thatand#160;illuminate the funny, unexpected, amazing aspects of the everydayand#8212;of breakfast, thunder and lightning, houseplants, tennis, freshly laundered socks.

Synopsis:

A funny, finger-wagging rhyme with some very good advice: never tease a weasel, because teasing isn't nice! Rather, kids should do nice things for animals, such as bake a drake a cake, or give a mule a pool, and much more. Long out of print, this new edition of Never Tease a Weasel with art by the great New Yorker cartoonist George Booth will surely please a weasel, and everyone else who reads it!

From the Hardcover edition.
