Poem Depot; Aisles of Smiles

Reviewed by:

‘Aisle 11: Miles of Smiles’ is a fitting heading for a section on silly nonsense poems about Hand-me-Downs to a Running Nose, which will bring smiles to readers of all ages. Douglas Florian, a prolific poet, changes his style of artwork substantially from his earlier poetry books, using only thick black ink sketches and bold, large, simple fonts. This book is reminiscent of Shel Silverstein poetry books about topics that interest children from homework, friends, common sayings and idioms. It also including an Index of Poem Titles and an Index of First Lines of over 100 new poems readers can find again and savor.
