Product description


Praise for Kyle Lukoff, Mark Hoffmann and Explosion at the Poem Factory:

“Liberal use of terms such as epithalmium and enjambment, both defined at book’s end, will draw precocious kids as well as adult poetry lovers to this friendly introduction to poetry and poetics.” — Publishers Weekly

“Hoffmann's playfully expressive double-page illustrations… heighten Lukoff's guffaws… Lukoff's sophisticated silliness hits the sweet spot for lovers of wordplay.” — Kirkus Reviews 

“The off-kilter angles and beanshaped personalities in Mark Hoffmann’s pictures add to the madcappery of a story that, with a little concentration (and the interpretive help of an adult), will be a primer on poetic forms and styles.” — The Wall Street Journal

“Readers who love words, and especially those who love poetry, will enjoy Explosion

at the Poem Factory.” — Winnipeg Free Press

“Rich illustrations and a plethora of interesting backmatter on poetry make this book both a fun and essential read.” — Vancouver Writers Fest

Praise for Kyle Lukoff and A Storytelling of Ravens:

“Offbeat nonsense humor of the highest order: not to be missed.” — Kirkus, starred review

“[A] charming tribute to the quirkiness of collective nouns … puns and wordplay abound.” — Foreword, starred review

Praise for Kyle Lukoff and When Aidan Became a Brother:

“Joyful and affirming, Aidan’s story is the first of its kind among books for welcoming a new baby.” — Kirkus, starred review

Praise for Mark Hoffmann and Fruit Bowl:

“A fun, brain-teasing food literacy lesson that’s a cornucopia of produce and wordplay. His naive-styled fruits … have vivid personalities, and their gouache colors are positively juicy.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Hoffmann brings the foods to life with big, bright, often extreme close-up illustrations,

with all-cap hand-lettering adding to the emphatic vibe. No doubt kids will learn a thing or two, and havesome light chuckles along the way.” — Booklist

“… imaginative and entertaining … An a-peel-ing addition with lots of curricular connections.”— School Library Journal
