Overview

Stanza by Jill Esbaum, Jack E. Davis


There's a slobbery thug in town, and his name is Stanza. He bullies everybody. He eats chicken pot pie. And . . . he writes poetry. On the sly. At night. Because he’s extremely afraid his bully brothers will find out. But Stanza doesn't let that stop him from entering one of his poems into a jingle contest. Does he win? Well, what if he did . . . not?

A great story about peer fear - a tough-guy dog who’s afraid his brothers will laugh at him if he exposes his love of writing poetry. The contrast between his street life and inner musings is fun and aptly illustrates the conflict between our outer and inner selves. The ending is great. Kids will get it from the illustration, but parents will chuckle at another level. Love this book!
