I went crazy with rhyme, It just gobbled my time, as well as many other poetic forms and devices become an obsession for a young boy, who just can’t stop writing poems. From the beginning of the day, he can’t stop writing poems until his teacher asks him to write a poem, when his mind suddenly goes blank. This story is told in poetic prose but includes numerous poems within the prose, providing models of eighteen different poetic forms. The back of the book provides ‘Ryan O’Brians’s Guide to Poetic Forms,’ a glossary of poetic forms as well as suggestions to develop one’s ‘Voice’ when writing poetry. Albertan Kyrsten Brooker’s illustrations, created with paint and collage, provide laugh-out loud humour, and are characteristic of many young boys’ actions. This will be a valued resource for Language Arts and English teachers alike as a model for introducing different poetic forms, as well as being a fun read-aloud for those who are passionate about poetry.
