This book is terrific for anyone who wants to have fun with poetry; it is particularly good for beginners. This woman is in love with the art of word manipulation. It is NOT A BOOK FOR THOSE WHO TAKE POETRY SERIOUSLY EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY.Though that should be obvious from the woman doing a leap on the cover, not to mention the title.Introduce your kids (and yourself) to poetry that is not all sonnets and forced "depth." It's remarkable what sort of depth you can find from found words, random bits of paper, and a walk.

This book really inspired me. I have poems growing out of the exercises the book offers. What I especially like is that the exercises provide a framework for poems that really helps me with the flow of images and narrative element of poem writing. For me, this was much more beneficial than prompts.

This book was a wonderful read, and as a young poet I found it inspirational, amazing, and all around awesome, and would definitely recommend it to anyone liking poetry.
