I am reading my poem ‘Anifables’ from The Letterbox Cat (Scholastic)

 

I have pictures in my head of what these MIXEDUP ANIMALS look like. Maybe you can draw or paint one for me to post on the blog.

OR you could make up your own mixed up animal – take half of one animal and put it with half of another.

I took lion and kiwi and came up with lioniwi.

I could have taken caterpillar and snail and come up with caternail! Or catersnail. Or Snaipillar!

You could give the strange creature A WHOLE POEM of their own!

What do they like to eat? How do they move? What noises do they make? Where do they sleep? What do they do that is fascinating or different?

You could illustrate your poem. I would love to see these!

Have fun!

 

you could record yourself reading your poem to send me (MP3 or MP4)

 

send to  paulajoygreen@gmail.com

please include your name age and name of school

don’t forget to put ANIFABLE challenge in subject line so I don’t miss it

don’t put your surname on drawings or paintings or collages (Poetry Box policy)
