Overview

Turn up the sound! An award-winning duo return with a playfully enticing ode to the pleasures of reading poetry aloud.One voice, two voice, three voice, free voice! Whether rhyming, tongue tying, or defying structure, here are more than three dozen poems that simply beg to be read aloud. The creators of A Poke in the I and A Kick in the Head complete a triplet with this collection of lively rhymes and tricky tongue-twisters, poems for more than one voice, bilingual poems - and poems that may just inspire kids to memorize them (and impress anybody in earshot). Paul B. Janeczko offers a range of gems from classic Shakespeare and Lear to anonymous rhymes to contemporary riffs on everything under the sun, while Chris Raschka counterpoints with the vibrant accents of his wittily detailed artwork.

Skillfully chosen, the poems cover a thought-provoking array of topics weaving seamlessly from silly to solemn to spooky...With much to offer for both classroom use and pleasure reading, this delightful addition to the series should be a first purchase. --School Library Journal (starred review) Punchy collages flutter acorss airy white pages in loose visual arrangements; torn scraps of origami paper layer with fluid lines in tart color... By the time the volume closes with Whitman's I Hear America Singing , readers will be emboldened to join in the song . --Publishers Weekly (starred review) The universally strong peoms, expertly tuned to both the anthology's theme and its young audience, include classic and contemporary selections...superbly noisy celebration of language that's sure to convert even the most reluctant poerty readers. --Booklist (starred review)


In the spirit of this team's previous anthologies A Poke in the I (2001) and A Kick in the Head (2005), this collection rounds up 37 quirky poems chosen because they are terrific candidates for reading aloud, according to the introduction. Here, the Jabberwock rears its manxome head and The Owl and the Pussy-Cat pop up in their pea-green boat, but contemporary voices such as Douglas Florian and Sandra Cisneros join the chorus too. The poems are organized by type, including tongue twisters, poems for two and three voices, bilingual poems and limericks (one of which pluckily rhymes Boise, noisy and New Joisy!). David McCord's The Pickety Fence will have youngsters grabbing sticks and heading out the door: The pickety fence / The pickety fence / Give it a lick it's / The pickety fence. Rebecca Kai Dotlich's Where Lizzie Lived: A Haunted Tale is ripe for reciting in the dead of night. Raschka's vivacious ink, watercolor and torn-paper illustrations capture the giddy spirit, sound and movement of this playful, sometimes edgy, collection. (Poetry. 8-12) (Kirkus Reviews)
