Eric Ode's playful exploration of the active nature of poems, and how they can shape and transform our world combines with exquisite, energetic illustrations by Jieting Chen.
"I can't tell you how wonderful this book is … … a lesson on poetry, an activity finding the adjectives on the page, identifying the prepositions on another. For younger readers, this book could be used as an activity in finding all the sight words! … there is so much potential in this book!" -- Oh, the Books We Love!
"It's inspiring for younger readers, learning to put their thoughts together, and the colorful artwork and movement furthers the idea that words never stay in one place." -- Mom Read It
"By assembling individual words into poems, the protagonist effectively creates the text, while dynamic, contemporary, stylized illustrations cleverly incorporate the poems into each double-page spread.
An ingenious, inspiring lesson in the crafting of poetry." -- Kirkus Reviews
