Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While John Keats earnestly thought he might be andldquo;among the English poets,andrdquo; he also knew how to play with words. Full of whimsical rhymes and jolly rhythms, Naughty Boy: A Song about Myself pleases adults and children alike: children giggle hearing its happy rhymes (as do adults), and adults smile at the poetandrsquo;s light-hearted, self-deprecating portrait. In this ear-delighting and witty frolic, Keats teases himself and teases the language.

He wrote Naughty Boy while on a visit to Scotland, feeling distant from his family in London, and sent it in a letter to his fifteen-year-old sister. Read this book aloud to your child, and together youandrsquo;ll have the pleasure of it.

There was a naughty boy,

A naughty boy was he,

He would not stop at home,

He could not quiet beandmdash;

He took

In his knapsack

A book

Full of vowels

And a shirt

With some towelsandhellip;

For everyone within earshot, the delight begins! And then together enjoy Grant Silversteinandrsquo;s endearing color ink drawings, the perfect accompaniment to Keatsandrsquo; words.

Born in 1953, Grant Silverstein is a self-taught artist presently living in Pennsylvania. He has exhibited widely in North America. He illustrated The Verb andldquo;To Birdandrdquo; by Peter Cashwell (Paul Dry Books, 2003).

Synopsis:

A gift for adults and children to enjoy with each other, and to learn by heart!
