This book was quite interesting, is a funny poem book with intellectual puns. I truly enjoined them and learned some literary terms, concepts. I would use this for a much older range of children. ( )

Super challenging wordplay, references and poetic forms. Definitely wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but fun for philologists (a word that came up in the book's copious footnotes). ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316363448, Hardcover)

What is a Spoonerism? How many syllables are in a Haiku? What makes a palindrome a palindrome? The answers to these questions and many more are in this witty and wise collection, which invites readers to discover the joy of language and introduces them to literary and historical figures from Shakespeare and Gertrude Stein to Mel Brooks and Zbigniew Brzezinski. The twenty-three poems are accompanied by educational and entertaining explanatory notes, as well as a glossary, making this book perfect for classroom use. With bold, graphic illustrations by New Yorker cover artist Ha, this book is sure to entice people of all ages - even those suffering from poetryphobia (from the Greek; fear of poetry).
