Here's Jon Agee's latest creation Orangutan Tongs: Poems to Tangle Your Tongue (Hyperion). These aren't just tongue twisters they're tongue tornadoes with wonderful wordplay and a love of the sheer sound of words. Here's a short sample:
Drew and Lou drew drawings.
They both drew nicely...but!
Drew drew what Lou drew
And Lou drew what Drew drew,
So nobody knew who drew what!
It's a funny way to draw your pay but it drew out a laugh from me!
Speaking of drawing, the punny poems are illustrated by Jon with simple elegant watercolors that prove less is more, more or less.
So please agree to join Jon Agee and me in enjoying these 48 pages of joy.
