NPM 2020 Day 28: Eek, You Reek!

Let’s have another laugh today, shall we?

1-Eek Reek COVERToday’s poetry anthology is another non-fiction themed one.  This time the theme is all stinky animals.  Or bugs, in the case of the poem I picked to highlight.  Yes, STINK.  It got an entire anthology devoted to it.

“Eek, You Reek!” is another great anthology from Jane Yolen and her daughter Heidi E. Y. Stemple. Not only are the poems and the back matter well written, but the pictures are incredibly funny.  I have to admit, I never thought of all the stinky critters there are in the world.  And this poem greatly amused me.  Oh my goodness, the look on that frog’s face!  And how violently the beetle is spraying his “bug mace”!  LOL!  Just LOOK!

Did you catch that last nonfiction tidbit?  It has the ability to spray up to 30 TIMES!!!  In ONE go!  Yikes!
