Description


Enter the delightful world of this long-format picture book poetry collection from #1 New York Times-bestselling creator Calef Brown.

This book is powered by 100% natural
POETROLIUM™
A verse-based energy source
(with verbal synergy, of course)


This stupendous poetry collection is full of zany characters—from Sleepy LaFeete, who chooses to snooze in the busiest spots, to Mister Adam Hatter and the Lovely Lady Wigg, who had a fig banquet and danced a fancy jig, to a guy named Rexx who uses exxtra Xs every now and then. It’s an irresistible feast: whimsical, hilarious, and always inspired. Calef Brown—master of wordplay and whimsy—serves up a spectacular verbal and visual banquet!

"Artplay to go with the wordplay. Readers who take silliness seriously are well-advised to "sit back and sample this humble compendium. / Begin in the middle or go back from the endium."—Kirkus Reviews
