in the dreaded bog.
The air was like borscht.
This poem is the worscht.
The rhymes are forscht.

From Up Verses Down: Poems, Paintings, and Serious Nonsense
Enter the delightful world of this long-format picture book poetry collection from #1 New York Times-bestselling creator Calef Brown.
This book is powered by 100% natural POETROLIUM™
A verse-based energy source (with verbal synergy, of course)
This stupendous poetry collection is full of zany characters―from Sleepy LaFeete, who chooses to snooze in the busiest spots, to Mister Adam Hatter and the Lovely Lady Wigg, who had a fig banquet and danced a fancy jig, to a guy named Rexx who uses exxtra Xs every now and then. It’s an irresistible feast: whimsical, hilarious, and always inspired. Calef Brown―master of wordplay and whimsy―serves up a spectacular verbal and visual banquet!
