Publisher Description:

What is a haiku? It sounds like a sneeze. And isn't a lantern a light source? Actually, they are two types of ancient Japanese poetry. Award-winning author Brian P. Cleary explains how each form works--and shows how these little poems can contain big surprises! If It Rains Pancakes is packed with poems to make you chuckle, puzzle, and ponder. And when you've finished reading, you can try your hand at writing your own haiku and lanterns!

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
