The words in a concrete poem form a shape that complements the meaning of the poem. They may wiggle about, curve around or hurtle down the page, but they will always startle and delight the eye. John Agard, Sylvia Cassedy, John Hegley, Roger McGough, Edwin Morgan ... these are just a few of the celebrated poets included in Paul B. Janeczko's intriguing selection of concrete poems, illustrated with pizzazz by Chris Raschka.


Janeczko's distinctive work provides multiple ways of understanding the experiences of young people through poetry. Celebrated illustrator of Table Manners and many other books for children.
