With high-energy illustrations and text that sings from the page, Captain Perseverance inspires young readers to discover the power of grit.
These poems are about real love a valentine wrapped in bands of steel with the tensile strength of eternity. --Judith Fritz, Taos Art Association
Snappy and hilarious in true Brod Bagert style, these goofy poems are united by their kid authenticity and quirky school themes. From a computer virus that one kid claims is sure to keep him homesick until summer vacation, to the librarian who tames "the savage beast" (a mouse run amok in the library), to a superhero recruited to scare off the school bully, this is most definitely not your typical poetry collection. Robert Neubecker's bright, dynamic artwork propels each poem into another stratosphere of funny. By the end, kids will have contracted a different strain of school fever altogether.
"Kids will appreciate the humor and will see themselves in the high-energy narrator"—Booklist
