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!

This bright and funny poetry book is filled with little gems. Some are lovely, some are funny and all are fabulous! My two favorites are Watch Out and Yummy. Watch Out is about a Karate chopping pig and Yummy is about the ultimate in tasty burps. FUN!
