Great poetry and great illustrations make for a wonderful book January 26, 2008Posted by Matsu in Fun, Humor, Random.
Last weekend Daniel Pinkwater reviewed a children’s book of poetry called, “Flamingos on the Roof” by Calef Brown. After hearing them read just a couple of the poems I knew I had to order a copy. I really connected with the author.
After seeing the cover and hearing the reporters describe the illustrations, I knew I would like the art as much as I did the poems. So, I ordered a copy of the book right away.
If you are curious and just want to hear a couple of poems from the book, you can go over and read about this segment of NPR’s Weekend Edition and see for yourself why that got me hooked. On that web page you can click on the “listen now” button to hear the recording of that broadcast. Enjoy!
