- The Pencil by Paula Bossio
This is a board book with coloured pencil drawings that is really really really really cool! Imagine a girl following a pencil line and seeing where it leads her.
It is not so much where the line goes but what the line becomes.
A skipping rope
something to slip and curl and slip and curl down
a whirligig ball for a whirligig girl
big beautiful bubbles to blow and blow
I can’t give e v e r y t h i n g away!
You will have to read this very gorgeous book yourself.
I am wondering how I can use the idea for a poem.
2. How to Be Famous by Michal Shalev
This is a very very very groovy book about some very groovy and very famous pigeons.
Any pigeon who is not famous is NOT from their family.
The star of the book who is telling the story is a famous model.
The star pigeon has such a big mouth! What a show off!
And the book has a very cunning ending that fits a famous pigeon with a very BIG mouth!
3. Detective Gordon: A Complicated Case by Ulf Nilsson illustrated by Gitte Spee
If you like the sound of a detective toad
whose best friend is Buffy the mouse
and who adores eating cakes
and has so much courage
stored inside of him
and does a tremendous amount of sleeping
and dreaming and going
out on secret missions
and showing kindness
…. this is just the book for you!
Happy Easter! You can still try my March poetry challenges!
