This collection of original poems will knock your socks off, and Lesynski has just the poem for that event: Sock Fluff. Her poetry is an invitation to be witty, expressive and creative, and her words demonstrate just how much fun poetry and everyday life can be. Topics range from sending out an SOS for delicious sausages, imagining what it would be like to have a brudda named Brad and keeping the mozza-keetos away, to indulging in laaaaaziness. Lesynski’s infectious fun with sound, rhythm and beat are guaranteed to win over the most reluctant anti-poetry student.
Exuberant collection of child-centered rhymes that dance in your head and bounce off your tongue, that beg to be read.
Will leave you breathless but wonderfully energized
Will appeal to fans of Jack Prelutsky and Shel Silverstein.
Named to "The Year's Best" List. Will appeal to fans of Jack Prelutsky and Shel Silverstein. Will leave you breathless but wonderfully energized. An exuberant collection of child-centered rhymes that dance in your head and bounce off your tongue, that beg to be read, chanted, or sung aloud...terrific in a classroom, allowing teachers to have fun liberating the poet in every child.
Dirty Dog Boogie is a gem of a children's book, full of light-hearted irreverent rhymes. The cartoon-like blue and white illustrations match the spirit of the poems, a natural result of both being the creations of one talented person. The subject matter is original, the rhythm impeccable, the play on words amusing, and, if an entire poem doesn't stick in the mind forever, certain parts of it will -- it gobbled up the grub and grew, always keep a bit of boogie going in your head, puddles of sun. Parents and teachers will find this a terrific book to read to little children, who, when they are older, will enjoy the fun each time they read it to themselves.
