I Ate a Cicada Today

2014 INDIES Winner
Bronze, Picture Books, Early Reader (Children's)

Each limerick-like verse in this book of goofy anecdotes uses evocative yet silly vocabulary to convey situations that are both nonsensical and imaginative. A thug mugs a ladybug, for instance, and a tall giraffe gets photographed— in sing-song poems comparable in quirkiness to Raffi’s “Down by the Bay.” This instantly lovable and informative creative effort is sure to delight. The book also includes a CD of the songs performed by the author. Ages four and up.
