Product Details

Praise

“The poems are easy to read, in authentic-sounding language that captures the poets’ personalities; avatar-like illustrations accompany each piece to remind readers of who’s who. A helpful guide to poetic forms appears at the end of the book.” —The Horn Book

“Entertaining . . . Shovan skillfully employs different poetic forms and styles…Characters… will inspire readers as they find the courage to save their school and make their voices heard, both as a united front and as capable, valuable individuals.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“Eighteen kids. Eighteen Stories. An original idea, artfully and heartfully rendered.  What a treat.” —Eileen Spinelli, author of Another Day as Emily and other books

“A delightful book, with an endearing cast of characters who can help teach the craft of poetry while sharing their own diverse personal stories.” —Margarita Engle, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Surrender Tree
