Punchy collages flutter acorss airy white pages in loose visual arrangements; torn scraps of origami paper layer with fluid lines in tart color… By the time the volume closes with Whitman’s "I Hear America Singing", readers will be emboldened to join in the "song".

The universally strong peoms, expertly tuned to both the anthology’s theme and its young audience, include classic and contemporary selections…superbly noisy celebration of language that’s sure to convert even the most reluctant poerty readers.
