For #PoemInYourPocketDay pluck a poem from Hypnotize a Tiger by @CalefBrown. Not only are his poems tons of fun, they’re chock-full of portmanteau, alliteration, and rhyme. From “the scores of peacocks and adorable pandas in Pandora’s box,” that make up a “Pandoradox” to “the cats upon the mountaintop” making “catsup for the town,” Hypnotize a Tiger invites readers to slow down and revel in the glory of imagination and word-play. To top it off, cheeky narrators provide commentary on each poem that will spark lively conversations in your class. Enjoy!
