A Kick in the Head: An Everyday Guide to Poetic Forms
poems selected by Paul B. Janeczko
illustrated by Chris Raschka
Poems come in many forms, from couplets to limericks or sonnets to ballads. In this book, Janeczko and Raschka introduce readers to these and other poetic forms, playfully explaining how they are constructed. The selected poems are spirited and fun to read; Raschka's watercolour and cut-paper pictures add a whimsical touch.
