Publisher Description:

Acrostic? What kind of stick is that? Actually, it's a poem! Acrostic poems are created from a word or phrase written vertically down the page. Each letter becomes part of a line in the poem, revealing a thought or a clue about the poem's topic. Award-winning author Brian P. Cleary shows how even the wackiest words can make an acrostic poem. Bow-Tie Pasta is packed with acrostics to make you snicker and snort. And when you've finished reading, you can try your hand at writing your own poems!

Category Description for Poetry Adventures:

There is no, “Ho Hum, Poetry is boring!” here! You’ll find engaging illustrations and themes that appeal to those preteen kids: an 800-pound spaghetti limerick; a piranha acrostic; a pizza haiku; a Halloween candy concrete poem; sleepover party quatrain; and more. Each book starts with a Table of Contents and a 2-page explanation of the specific poetry style highlighted: List, Acrostic, Quatrain, Haiku, Concrete, and Limericks. Fun and educational, with a bit of quirk, these collections are proof that poetry can engage any audience. Further reading and website recommendations at back. 6 3/4”x 9”, 32 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth
