** 2011 Cybils Book Award Nominee in Poetry **
In this long-awaited sequel to her first Barking Spiders book, CJ Heck continues her journey to help children experience life through poetry with her unique blend of humor, insight and with an understanding that, like adults, children wish to make sense of the world they live in. And when it still doesn't make sense she helps them see, that's okay, too, because it doesn't always make sense.
"This is magical -- children's poetry at its very best."
~Karen Lynn Vidra (Texas)
