A Pocketful of Poems


"Grimes () boils poetry down to its essence in this picture book homage to words—a must-read for aspiring poets and writers...Tiana's bubbling personality shines forth from each verse, and Steptoe...in an extraordinary feat, sculpts each of his character portraits from construction paper in a single, uninterrupted linear outline. ...Readers can only hope that this dynamic duo has many more pockets full of poems." , starred review
