(Gibbs Smith, March 10, 2020)
Be silly! Lewis Carroll’s hilarious poetry will lead the way. Lewis Carroll, author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, “Jabberwocky,” and “The Walrus and the Carpenter,” was the king of silly. Kate Coombs’ writing and Carme Lemniscates’ fun and silly art bring Carroll’s delightful nonsense poetry to life for little readers, encouraging them to be silly, Be Creative, and Be Yourself. “Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, won’t you join the dance?” The silliest lines have been gathered from Carroll’s vast collection of poetry and stories for this one-of-a-kind board book. Kate Coombs is an award-winning author of original fairy tales, poems, middle-grade fantasy novels, and picture books, including the critically acclaimed Water Sings Blue, which won the Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award for 2012, and seven books in the bestselling BabyLit series.
