Jabberwalking is not like other books, and that’s a good thing. Written and illustrated by the U.S. Poet Laureate Herrera, this book is a lesson in The Fine Art of Jabberwalking as the words zoom, spin, and flash through the world. One part Jabber Notebook, one part autobiography, one part poetry and all parts wacky, Herrera shares the secret of how to turn wonder at the world into wild poetry. The creativity jumping off the pages will be sure to spark inspiration in young readers with active minds (and fledgling Poet Laureates). Ages 10 and up.
