Praise

Praise for Poem Depot:


“Plenty of laughs to be had.”—Publishers Weekly

“More than one reviewer has already noted that fans of Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends or A Light in the Attic might also enjoy Douglas Florian’s Poem Depot: Aisles of Smiles.”—Julie Danielson (of Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast) in Kirkus Reviews

“With a strong thread of wordplay, the poems will amuse children while also challenging them to think, making this an appealing source of short verse to memorize and an enjoyable collection of poetry to read just for fun.”—Booklist

“The verse here ranges from screwball nursery rhymes to free verse, limericks and even a Ben Franklin aphorism…it’s not Chaucer, but it’s diverting.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Echoes of Shel Silverstein’s brand of wit and whimsy reverberate in Florian’s 170 poems. The kid-friendly selections creatively capture the quotidian comings and goings of youngsters in humorous, forward-thinking verse.”—School Library Journal
