    Really? I thought the poet did a great job on the poems. And the illustrations aren't horrible, they're realistic and fun to look at. Also I don't know how you liked the poem about the girl who wanted a pony. That's just sad. But this is just my opinion.

This book is written in verse, and it's probably my first book that I have read that is written in verse...

    I love poems. I love the way that the poet explains him/herself. I think i can be a poet because I explain myself and i can tell people if im at a rough time but in a glad way.
