The Owl and the Pussycat and Other Poems
Part of poetry's fun is the combination of an absurd tale with a definite structure. "There Was an Old Lady" tells of a woman swallowing a great many things to rid herself of a fly with a singsong rhyme and rhythm readers of all ages can find entertaining. More than a dozen other poems offer readers a chance to absorb key parts of the language arts curriculum while reading silly poems, serious poems, and those in between! Colorful drawings engage readers as they learn to navigate the structure and imagery of each wonderful work.
