African Acrostics: A Word in Edgeways

Tricia Stohr-Hunt, Round I Poetry judge and blogger at The Miss Rumphius Effect, describes her site as "[t]he blog of a teacher educator discussing poetry, children's
literature and issues related to teaching children and their future
teachers." But it's so much more than that–including a regular home for Poetry Friday and the Poetry Stretch, an incredible agglomeration of booklists…you'll just have to go check it out.

AfricanAcrostics Tricia reviewed one of our Poetry finalist titles, African Acrostics: A Word in Edgeways written by Avis Harley with photographs by Deborah Noyes. From the 18 creatively crafted acrostic poems to the gorgeous photography, it's sure to appeal to animal enthusiasts and poetry lovers alike. Says Tricia in her review:

The poems in this book are deftly created….The patterns that exist within them never get in the way of the poem itself, and finding them is a bit of a surprise.
