Is this poetry? Math? A brainteaser? Yes! It's all that and more. The poet J. Patrick Lewis
has reimagined classic poems--such as Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" and Langston
Hughes's "April Rain Song"--and added a dash of math. Between the silly parodies
and the wonderfully wacky art, kids will have so much fun figuring out the puzzles,
they won't guess they're learning! Answers appear unobtrusively on each page, and
engaging information about the original poets is included. Math games and concepts,
poetry and poet biographies--it's all so cleverly put together. This funny book is a
treat for fans of words and numbers alike.

This book appeals to all ages -- older children and adults will appreciate the turns of phrase and the actual equations to solve. The younger set will enjoy the vibrant illustrations and poetic rhythms. It is fun and light-hearted but still very engaging and worthy of repeated readings!
