This one has a very cool concept--poems that take on shapes of objects. My favorites were the synchronized swimming poem and the Winter poem in which the words represented traces of snow falling from the sky on a black background. A number of the poems feature animals or sports. The format reminded me of a couple of the poems in Sharon Creech's Love That Dog and Hate That Cat.
