The Little Crooked Bookshelf

by J. Patrick Lewis and Kenn Nesbitt

Illustrated by Minalima

This week's pick is from Cottager Kara LaReau.

What it's all about...
Renowned children’s poets J. Patrick Lewis and Kenn Nesbitt and design agency Minalima shine a light on seventeen cryptids (aka mysterious creatures) from around the world.

Why it's on The Little Crooked Bookshelf...
A frighteningly fresh and funny pick for Poetry Month!

Our favorite lines...

Last crew missing; gone
aweigh. Ship leaves soon.
Hard work. No slackin.’
Be prepared to work 
with Kraken.

Our favorite illustration... 

From BIGFOOT IS MISSING! Illustration copyright 2015 by Minalima.
Why kids will love it...
Like their subject matter, these poems will sneak up on you, as they hide in signs, in labels, and in classified ads, among other unexpected places.

Why grown-ups will love it...
It’s no mystery — this book is monstrously fun for all ages!
