Mix anything together and who knows what you’ll get. You may create something wonderfully different! Water and flour make a sticky paste perfect for arts and crafts. And what can be better than mixing sugar, milk and butter to produce yummy fudge? With simple words and vivid illustrations, this series of 13 fun and bouncy poems illustrates the concept of combining things. Mixing blue and yellow paint to make green is probably familiar to most children, but who thinks of music as being the result of mixing the sounds of instruments? Or a sports team as the combination of many players with different strengths? Young children will love listening to these funny poems while learning about a simple, but important, concept.

Have some toe-tapping, tongue-flapping fun with this brilliant new book by Newbery Award-winner Paul Fleischman and gifted illustrator Beppe Giacobbe. You'll have to see, shout, share, perform, and experience it to believe it! Two's company . . . four's a blast! Especially when you're joining voices with family or friends. Around the kitchen table, on the front steps, or in the classroom, these rousing, rib-tickling, delicious poems will fill you full of the joy of reading aloud. Paul Fleischman won the Newbery Medal for JOYFUL NOISE: POEMS FOR TWO VOICES. Now he invites us to make more word music. Settle back and chant "The Quiet Evenings Here," as Grandma rocks, the clock tick-tocks, Sister hums, raindrops rap, and no one cares a hoot for the noisy, fast-paced world outside. Delight in the gossipy "Seventh-Grade Soap Opera," alive with whispers, invitations, and hearsay about who's fibbing, eavesdropping, or holding hands with whom. Let the poignant "Ghosts' Race" reveal the secret hungry ghosts know—and their spirited take on mortal mealtime. Arranged in color-coded groups of four lines, one line per speaker, each poem weaves a rich tapestry of rhythm, sense, and sound. Written by Paul Fleischman, the renowned author of WESLANDIA, and evocatively illustrated by Beppe Giacobbe, this hip, innovative, and extraordinary book will have readers of all ages sounding off.

Black Stars in a White Night Sky, Lawson's second book of poetry for children, includes fractonyms, concretes, as well as short lyrics and poems that don't rhyme. Lawson stretches the boundaries of what is normally thought of as "children's poetry," but not at the expense of the book's entertainment value or clarity. The poems are written within hearing of both children and adults; philosophy and tomfoolery are equally at home in this exemplary new tome.
