Today I’m going to take a jump in another direction: holiday poetry collections.
I discovered “Trick or Treat” by Debbie Leppanen at Highlights last fall as well. I met Debbie there and she brought the book with her. I was curious enough to track down a copy to give it a read.
This is a collection of Halloween poems, which I found a bit humorous (as Highlights editors let us know that they don’t buy Halloween content for the magazine). This book wasn’t produced by them, but I still found it a bit funny. Though truth be told, I found most of the book funny. This isn’t a bunch of spooky poems (though I think at least one of the poems could probably be considered that), but a bunch of funny poems on the subject. And you know how much I like to laugh. I picked only one poem that made me giggle (and one I also liked the illustration to). It is both a poem and a joke. VERY clever!
