Monster Lunch

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Echoes


In Monster Lunch we dine with Frankenstein, attend a burgoo and a birthday party, meet a grumpy garden dude and slurp hot zoop. Each poem is followed by an interview with the main character or fascinating facts about food. This collection of yummy, yucky, messy and hot rhyming stories is bursting with rhythmical fun.

---

"A book of six silly poems that students will love to read...Fun and simple to read. Recommended."

---

"Skene's poems and information are enjoyable reads, both funny and informative. They can be read as a book, or poem by poem as time permits; these would be great in a classroom for when the teacher has a few free minutes (before the bell rings or otherwise). Highly recommended."

---

"Rhyming poems are paired with an interview with the main character or a serving of fascinating food facts. Black-and-white art appears in this collection crafted around a most clever premise."

---

"A compilation of six funny, story length rhyming poems...The poems are well-written and fun to read aloud."

---

"Offering (among other treats) a good-nutrition update on some old Mother Goose poems, Frankenstein's idea of a good feed, and an introduction to the concept of burgoo."

---

"The colourful cover and numerous illustrations should attract independent readers while teachers could use indiviual poems...Recommended."

Rhyme Stones

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Echoes


In Rhyme Stones, we go spelunking, we meet a witch who can't stay on her broomstick, a schoolyard bully, and we see how a simple piece of cloth can become anything we want it to be. Each long poem is followed by an exclusive interview with the main character, and each short poem has a "trailer" of cool facts about the theme.

---

"The poems...are enjoyable and flow nicely when read aloud."
