Pocket Poems

Bobbi Katz, Selected by, Marylin Hafner, Illustrator Dutton Children's Books $15.99 (28p) ISBN 978-0-525-47172-1
Pint-sized poetry proliferates in Pocket Poems, ed. by Bobbi Katz, illus. by Marylin Hafner, with topics ranging from serious to silly. ""Breakfast"" takes an irreverent approach to Humpty Dumpty (it concludes, ""Then all the King's horses/ And all the King's men/ Had scrambled eggs/ for breakfast again""); ""Mary Had a Little Lamb,"" on the other hand, ends in dinner (""Mary had a little lamb,/ You've heard this tale before;/ But did you know/ She passed her plate/ And had a little more?""). Featured poets include Katz herself as well as Emily Dickinson and Carl Sandburg among others. Spot and panel illustrations help to group the poems thematically.
