Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525467181, Hardcover)Here's a wake-up call to any kid who associates "poetry" with tame recitations and namby-pamby wording-it's a book bursting with verses that sputter, shout, chatter, and beg to be read out loud...really loud! Well-known poet Bobbi Katz sets every foot to tapping and tongue to rapping with her infectious odes to noises of all kinds. From burps to soothing ocean waves to honking horns, noises jump and jangle. Printed in the funkiest fonts and paired with the stylish, boldly graphic illustrations of newcomer Susan Kwas, whose artwork snaps and pops as vigorously as the poems themselves, this volume guarantees readers an eyeful as well as an earful. After enjoying this slyly witty invitation to make a ruckus, kids will want to raise a rousing cheer for poetry!
