From the simplest couplet to the mind-boggling pantoum, the award-winning team behind A POKE IN THE I shows us the many fascinating ways poetic forms take shape. In this splendid and playful volume second of a trilogy an acclaimed creative team presents examples of twenty-nine poetic forms, demonstrating not only the (sometimes bendable) rules of poetry, but also the spirit that brings these forms to life. Featuring poems from the likes of Eleanor Farjeon (aubade), X. J. Kennedy (elegy), Ogden Nash (couplet), Liz Rosenberg (pantoum), and William Shakespeare, the sonnet king himself, A Kick in the Head perfectly illustrates Robert Frost's maxim that poetry without rules is like a tennis match without a net.

Chris Raschka is an author and illustrator of children's books. Raschka's books, Yo!Yes? and Charlie Parker Played Be-Bop are famous for their minimal texts and inventive art. His book, Mysterious Thelonious, made Horn Book's Honor List in 1997.
