Iggy Wiggy Tricka Tops: The Really Silly Poetry Book
Nikhil Tharakan, author
Wonder what kids dream about every day ? This collection of 50 short & delightful poems for young readers was written by a 5th grader discovering the world one day at a time. The poems, which range from insightful pieces like “Plants”, “Mom’s cooking” and “Procrastination” to silly ones like “Grizzly” and “How to not write a poem” beautifully captures the thoughts, imaginations and challenges of most 10 year olds. Some of them are happy, some depressing, but most are just outright silly. The vibrant illustrations accompanying the poems adds even more color to the author’s creative journey over the last few years. This book is ideal for elementary school kids who want something short and fun to read and laugh about.
