" Beautiful poetry and illustrations. " said.

" Beautiful book that celebrates some of our best poets. The minute I read it, I took a picture of a page or two and texted them to a friend with the message, "Go out and get this one now." I have this one sitting in my living room and find that it attracts the attention of young and old alike. " said.

" I love the idea of poets writing poetry inspired by other poets. Beautiful illustrations and diverse selection of mentor poets. Would have loved to see poems from the mentor poet side by side with the new inspired poems by the authors. " said.

" I think I like this more than any poetry book for young people that I have ever read. I love the styles and biographical nature of the poems, I love the range of poets celebrated, I love the art. Very good. " said.

" A lovely collection that pays homage to incredible poets of different time periods using Alexander, Wentworth, and Colderley’s voices to interpret them. With an illustration and a short biography of the poet at the end, it teaches about style, mimickry, and celebration. " said.

" For all the teachers out there who use mentor texts with their students, this is a perfect mentor text for, well, mentor texts. Each poem is written in the style of a particular poet, from Robert Frost to Naomi Shihab Nye to e.e. cummings. I will be using this in my HS classes moving forward! " said.

" Truly gorgeous, both poems and pictures! My absolute favorites include "The Music of the Earth" celebrating Pablo Neruda, "Tambourine Things" celebrating Judith Wright, and "Hue and Cry" celebrating Gwendolyn Brooks. I hope this book will inspire children to write their own poetry expressing wonder. " said.

" This book is a wonderful collection of poems that celebrate the work and style of renowned poets such as Robert Frost, Walter Dean Myers, Emily Dickinson, and many others. These poems are beautifully illustrated with mixed media artwork. This would be a great companion to Keep a Pocket in Your Poem: Classic Poems and Playful Parodies by J. Patrick Lewis and a great addition to any bookshelf. " said.
