A Kick in the Head

A Kick in the Head

An Everyday Guide to Poetic Forms

Selected by Paul B. Janeczko

The creators of A Kick in the Head offer another winning, picture-book poetry collaboration. Here, each poem represents a different poetic form, from the familiar to the more obscure. This is the introduction that will ignite enthusiasm. The airy spaces between the words and images will invite readers to find their own responses to the poems and encourage their interest in the underlying rules, which, Janeczko says, "make poetry--like sports--more fun."
