I love the use of words. "Lion flips. / Monkey snips. / Dolphin drums. / Dragon strums." These poems are so much fun to read aloud as each word takes shape first on my tongue and then in our minds. This delightful collection of poems captured my imagination as they describe the adventures of everyday inanimate objects found at night.
