Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A selection of shape poems that early readers (6+) will love. It inspires children to be creative with word patterns and break out of the strictures of line by line writing. Great fun, if a little on the short side.

Good selection of poems - used the book to cover shape poems with my year 3 class. Book was a bit well used and not in brilliant condition.

Tantalizing Wordsmithery 8 Mar. 2000
By Lisa Denton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Poems don't have to be square or rectangular, according to the conventions of word processing. They can assume any visage at the whim of the poet.
This playful little book is a compilation of some very ingenious shape poems. Putting pictures into poems and poems into pictures is the goal, and the result in this volume is an energetic and inventive collection.
It is bound to astound young and veteran readers who will want to try the medium out for themselves, and make their words rain, snow, or explode into a firework display across their page.
