Buy Thinker: My Puppy Poet and Me
In this charming book of linked poems — the story of a pup who speaks, but only in verse — the distinguished children’s poet Greenfield glides gracefully between rhyme, free verse, haiku and rap. A boy named Jace becomes the dog’s owner. He names him Thinker (“I’m deep and I’m a poet,” the dog warns. “A cute name’s not O.K.”) and the two have back-and-forth chats about life. On every page, Abdollahi’s collaged illustrations bring the characters to life with a soulful flair.
32 pp. Jabberwocky/Sourcebooks. $15.99. (Ages 4 to 8.)
