Gone Camping: A Novel in Verse

(3) 1-3 Illustrated by Matthew Cordell. Sibs Lucy and Sam (Gone Fishing) are off to the great outdoors again, this time camping with Grandpa. In rotating voices, poems in various forms--including list poems, free verse, a lament, and haiku--describe the sometimes scary but ultimately exciting campout. Cordell's buoyant illustrations are a natural accompaniment to the upbeat verse. An extensive "Provisioning for Poetry" section discusses poetic devices and forms.
